Default WW2 veteran

I visited the old chap down the end of my road last Saturday.. a WW2 the German army .

He was in the artillery and I spent about 2 hours with him. Wish i had a tape recorder with me .

He did his drivers test in a 4X4 opel blitz ..... he really knew his vehicles too . He said the KRUPP had a very noisy boxer air cooled motor .

He ended up a POW , was captured in Italy . he was conscripted in Oct. 1941... and somehow avoided going to the Russian front , he asked to be sent to Nth Africa .

He drives around in a TOYOTA landcruiser tray .. amazing

Too much to say
