Alois Gilgenbach © Nick Stone Rob Schafer

An interesting little job/favour for Rob Schäfer of, this is his Great Uncle Alois Gilgenbach, retouched and colourised. I’ve not attempted a Wehrmacht soldier before, but at the end of the day the only real difference was feld grau instead of khaki, still just boys.

post on him is here on Rob’s website where you can read a lot more about the young chap, his experiences and his eventual sad demise in Silesia.
