A lovely set of figures to work with. I've added the helmet netting and weapon straps. The flag is made from a bit of paper and hand painted.
The three scene 'extras' are made up from dioramas I've presented on here a while back.

Behind the lines and surrounded, any mode of transport will do....June 7th 1944

The end of the trail. Eagles Nest.
The cobbles are made with an old paintbrush ferrule. My daft design.....

Went through the photos a couple of times and then realised - it was the figures.... Well done, and the B/W pics looked original for that time.
Cheers
Mike.
