Recommended Posts

I purchased these from a vet.When I read the backs,I thought the date or the location was wrong.However,I wasn't leaving his house without them....I was wrong the last V1 attack on Antwerp was in March 1945.

I have my doubts as to what the writing is describing. The writing says it is the same V-1 and yet to take a photo of it in level flight and then to be in position when it impacted, probably, miles later the cameraman must of been a very fast runner and good at judging where it would fall when it hasn't even tipped over into it's final dive - not to mention a lucky one to be that close to an impact with nothing shielding them from the blast.

If these were processed in the war I'd say that they were mass produced and either sold as propaganda postcards to the German public in the last months of the War or sold to the Allied troops by Belgian civilians.

Kevin,From examination under 20x magnification,I have always suspected that they were stills from a film...period of course.If you bought from a vet,you I am sure aware that some of the guys like to embellish.Indeed I believe there are many many more out there,but that is the case with all photographs to a lesser or greater degree,most did not have photos developed in singles.
