BMW.JPGPortait of my neighbour319 viewsThink this photo was done when MG-Bataillon 13 was moved away from the french border to be re-organized for Weserübung at the city of Magdeburg. Normal plans were to do a quick advance from Korsör to Kopenhagen and stay there. Only the heavy losses with Blücher and other ships brought the MG-Bataillon to Norway as a quick and close (Denmark) replacement.1 comments00000

Fische.JPGfishery harbour398 viewsI think this picture belonged to a Hammerfest/Honingsvag/Repparfjord photo series. It must be taken when MG-Bataillon 13 already had the Edelweiss badges of the mountain troops but before my neighbour visited the technical inspector school in summer 1942 in germany.00000

Gneisenau2.jpg
Gneisenau2.jpgGneisenau and Huascaran345 viewsGneisenau is under repair by the repairship Huascaran. The british sub Clyde hit her in the bow section, nearly disrupting the bow.Huascaran put two steel plates at the backboard bow to stabilize the bow for the return trip to germany. You can see the plates as brighter stripes near the anchor.
The ocean camouflage is replaced by a coastal camouflage while under repair.

Katzen.JPG
Katzen.JPGButchering cats338 viewsI don't know where and when. But there are no Edelweiss badges so MG-Bataillon 13 was not already moved to the mountain troops. I don't know why they are butchering cats. At this time of the war their wasn't hunger. Accidently shoot them while on guard? Trying to hunt and shot cats instead hares? I saw a similiar picture taken in africa, but showing an antelope. From the africa picture i know that the person was drafted before finishing his apprentice as a butcher and he had to prove his knowledge in front of a comitee to do his journeyman's examination00000

Lokken-Lager.JPG2. MG-Bataillon13 at Lökken267 viewsThe back of the photo reads Lökken. Since i have a photo of the Folketshus of Lökken i think these photos belong together. Watching this photo i think doing these ornaments needed some time. So i guess it wasn't just a short visit, but rather that the unit was placed their for a while. Anyone knows more?
