Walther , they're both fantastic , completely natural - the second one , though , is up there amongst the very best , could pass for an original no problem , you've really captured the " Barracks humour " seen in so many originals - well done , as always , keep em coming :wink:

Thanks and glad you like them :)

The aim of the photos this time was to show life in the barracks and alongside drill, show some light hearted pictures as they often get overlooked in favour of the god of war images.

There are more on the units Facebook page - more to come as I edit them :)

Hi all ! This is my 1st post here.
This is my impression of Grenadier from 20th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS ( Estonian ). Photo taken by my wife near actual Estonian positions around Oppeln.
Buildings in background were witness of heavy fights in 1945.
