This photo is from the same source as PotW #2 and once again shows men of Artillerie Lehr Brigade 900. Only one of the soldiers shown has had the good luck to acquire some locally produced fur clothing - however he still looks very cold indeed.
Once again, note the position has been excavated from the snow and ice - in winter the ground was often too frozen to move unless explosives were used.
In the foreground is the rear spade from an artillery piece - at first I thought a leFH 18 but now I am unsure. Can anyone identify the weapon?
