Otto von Bargen

One aspect of WWII that makes both figure building and genealogy so interesting, is the methodical record keeping employed by the German forces. These scanned documents were sent to me via a Norwegian with an interest in the Wiking and Nordland divisions. For anyone who also has an interest in military history, these scans are an in depth insight into one man's military career. Read on and enjoy.

I would have to say at this point that good looks do indeed run in the family.

As does a great sense of style.

I appreciate that the scans are quite small, and for anyone with a genuine interest, I can provide you with high resolution copies of the scans.

Das Panzermuseum 2003

I paid this splendid museum a visit in 2003, and must say that the exhibits and the entry price make for a great day out, even if it did take place during the summer heatwave. The photos below show a small sample of the varied WWII exhibits on show.
