Dvd Of Parachute Regiment Ww2 Photo Album 1944-46 6th Airbourne Palestine Jeeps :
First listed 13th May 2013
Here I offer 210 high resolution scans on a DVD ( 1200 dpi ) , produced from a British paratroopers photo album . Album is dated December 1944-March 1946 , it covers service in Europe 1944/45 and Palestine 1945/46.
The photos were taken by the soldier , not professional images . British soldiers were not permitted to carry cameras into combat , so there are no combat photos . There are however some nice photos taken in Europe during the war . Unfortunately , as yet I do not know the orignal owners name , butwith time and the help of others more knowledgeable than myself , I hope to be able to add names to the images .
Sadly , only a few of the photos are captioned . There is agood group photo taken at Bulford campin 1944 shortly before departure to Europe , a photo of the first mass drop taken at Salisbury Plain, other photos weretaken in Belguim , HQ Ardennes , France , Holland ( Wert Feb 1945 ) , Germany , Baltic Sea Wismar , more of Bulford 1946, then photos taken in Palestine / Israel/ Gaza 1946.
Approximately , 30 photos feature Jeeps , a few of more of army trucks , Army motorbikes ...3 photos show Paras posing on wrecked Luftwaffe fighter planes . Approximately a further 100 of the photos show paras in uniform . Most of these are relaxed posed photos ..many faces appear in more than one photo ...Band of Brothers stuff !
This is a very rare photo album , the only WW2photo album I have seen which belonged to a member of the parachute regiment ..many of the men pictured would have experienced hard fighting .
