Photo German Soldiers Southern France
#1

This was a small photo I found in with Dad's WWII photo negatives.

He wrote on the back: "Two German soldiers who surrendered to us

on our way through Southern France." At the bottom he wrote "boxes of K rations".

 

It must've been in the early months after the Aug 15th landing, because

our guys are shirtless (what would Patton have said?) :lol:

It sure wouldn't be warm for long!

 

Looks like Dad drew little arrows over the heads of the Germans

(the picture was so small I thought at first that they were branches).

Very cool. It looks like they're eating chow. Sure beats getting shot at I bet. Sad thing is that while you guys WERE getting shot at for most of the next year, they were probably kickin' back in the states! Enemy prisoners never had it so good.
