Black GI’s in France and Germany

Hi all,

I came across a group of WWII military/civilian photos that are interesting. They are of black GI’s in France and Germany in 1945. Even though most of the photos are in poor condition, I could could not pass the collection for a couple of bucks. Hopefully I can try to preserve them, though light cleaning did not seem to work.

I am especially interested in the photo of the soldiers at Camp Washington. I have not been able to find out much about this camp or its location. I am assuming that the soldiers are part of a truck transportation outfit. Any information would be appreciated.

How to make a german chicken wire helmet net

Hello I would like to know if someone has a guide to make one of those german chicken wire nets? I got an M42 restored (botched the texturing so i’m sending it to someone to do it properly for me) but in the meantime i’d like to make one of those helmet nets?
