I'd like to dedicate this thread for posting pictures of German fighting forces in Normandy, preferably in the Commonwealth sector.

If you're able to tell who, when, and where - do so and in that order. I'll be posting some images later today to really get this thread started.

PLEASE, put your images in spoilers.

Example:

116th Panzer Division, Reconnaissance - June 1944 - Normandy, Unknown

Not sure what happened, but it looks those links are broken now, or the host is not sharing. I can see FuriousBystander's photos and the ones in the first post of Dietrich's. The rest don't work.

Only links not showing for me right now are the first 2 pictures of Rommel inspecting the 21st Panzer Division. I'll fix those.

EDIT: Done. For some reason they had a URL attached and the picture url was messed up. My bad.

OK, whoever is hosting these pictures suck. I'm going to reupload these.

It would be cool if we knew exactly where these images were taken and have them show up on Google maps.
