Anonymous asked: Hello, I hope you don't quit, please keep on the good work; I watch your site daily as an instructive pictural and historical source of knowledge. Meanwhile, I'm still searching for that one gebirgsjäger with Y-straps! Greetings from Belgium, J.
Well it is very much appreciated! I do not think I will quit but will certainly be taking a few steps back for a little while.
And just to let you know, my friend and I have found one more picture of a Gebirgs in Y-Straps. An SS Gebirgs (Possibly NORD) in what look to be light weight ones that you would see on a Fallschirmjager or early war SS-VT troops. That brings the count up to a grand total of TWO ever (other than in airborne operations)!
Wish it was taught more like this in schools! In my home town there is a monument to the covered wagons, pretty gross. I hope in a 50-100 years more people see history like this.
But but but!!! Hitler! Nazis!!
Many have asked me why I intend to delete this page. While the decision is not set in stone, I for the time being will focus on things of a more personal nature / reenacting, rather than posting photos from my own and other personal private archives.
Too many photos that I physically own or are the personal property of other specific people of whom I am connected have gotten either poached or abused through this website, due in part to my own carelessness in posting non-watermarked photos. On numerous occasions I have found my own personal photos, that I or my friends physically own, ending up in places I would rather they not end up.
At the end of the day, I can count on one hand the number of people that are truthfully respectful and honor true history, the rest simple want to make their “blogs” look edgy by blasting it full of every image found on google when they type in “NAZI.”
So for now, I will stick to posting either images of reenacting, or historical images that are part of public record.
Had a realization today. As a result, I will probably be deleting this tumblr. See ya.

Nuremberg being a city of ZERO military strategic advantage to the allied powers, being that it was a civilian target with most of the city being made of medieval materials that could withstand very little abuse, but rather a “symbolic” gesture since Nuremberg was widely regards as the epitome of German culture.
