Soldiers of a Luftwaffe field division, armed with two MP40’s awaiting their orders. In total, some twenty field divisions were formed, of which most fought in Russia in the winter of 1942-43. Initially they were fitted with blue-grey airforce uniforms, but soon the depicted camouflage combat jacket was introduced. Curiously, the man in the foreground is wearing a helmet with an army eagle. Note the different color and material of the MP40 magazine pouches. Northern France, 1944.
