18 year old Otto Funk of XX-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 25 (12. XX-Panzer-Division "Hitlerjugend").

Although it were merely youngsters, the division would become infamous for their viciousness. He later quoted: "XX-Hauptscharführer Wilhelm Boigk, our chief, tells us the English have penetrated in the sector of Cheux and that their lead elements have already arrived at our artillery positions. We stay put at the side of the road during the night and await our orders to move out. I am in the middle of my comrades and I say, "who will the first of us to get hit today?" Boigk replies "Funk, stop saying nonsense!". After 30 to 40 m, the hollow rises to reach ground level and we have to flatten ourselves because there are only a few bushes towards the side of the enemy with a small hedge that has been well cleared by the shell impacts. Boigk gestures to me: "Funk, place yourself in this shell hole!" suddenly, again appear a few English and my MG-42 cracks to life. At the same time that I open fire I get a shock at the top of my left arm, which throws me into my side. My partner Klaus Schuh, immediately resumes firing the MG and Boigk tries to administer first aid, which is not easy as we are badly sheltered in the shell hole. The blood continues to flow down my right sleeve. Boigk tells me that we have to move back to the main hollow along the road. He pulls me by the foot with his right hand, and when we arrive in this hollow, I stand up, take a few steps and (from what Wilhelm Boigk later told me) faint. Boigk says to me, "Tonight, you asked who would be the first to get hit and now it's you!" A comrade immediately drives me to the Château de Louvigny where our field hospitals are located. In the afternoon a doctor removed a bullet that had entered my rib cage and crossed the left side of my thoracic cavity. In the evening, a wounded comrade informs me that Klaus Schuh was killed in battle; he was shot three times in the forehead just below his helmet. William Boigk who administrated 1st aid and dragged Otto Funk to safety would be killed 4.7.44 and left behind a wife and children. Otto Funk later re-joined his division and fought until May 8, 1945...

Felix R. (aged 8) on his first flight with a light sport aircraft over the sights around Speyer, Germany 🇩🇪, including the Hockenheim-Ring race track, flying a FK-9 Mk4.

The freedom of flight gives your mind a break of the ongoing Corona mess.

Especially on a beautiful and clear day like this, flying over the Rhine River valley overhead the Ludwigshafen industrial area (on the photos right of the Rhine river) and the city of Mannheim (left of the Rhine) with a tailwheel FK-9 Mk2.

Back in the air - after a five month winter and Corona-lockdown break, it feels fantastic to take to the air again, flying a FK-9 Mk2 light sport aircraft (photos 2-4) over the Rhine river (1), some local lakes (5) and the Speyer Cathedral (6).

*Non-political* Then and now. An 18 year old German SS soldier carrying MG42 ammo in Normandy is shown above, and the same man is pictured in the bottom right decades after the picture was taken.

His name is Otto Funk, photographed after an assault, near Rots. They were to follow up the attack at Norrey-en-Bessin on June 9, 1944. Also seen in the middle is SS-Grenadier Klaus Schuh, who would be killed on June 26, 1944. Otto Funk fought with the 15. (Aufklärungs ) Kompanie/ SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 25 der 12. SS-Panzer-Division “Hitlerjugend”, which consisted mainly out of 16-18 year old boys. Although it were merely ‘youngsters’, the division would become infamous for their viciousness. Otto Funk kept on fighting until the end of the war, when he was captured by the U.S. Forces. He was born on June 6, 1926 and would pass away on September 11, 2011.

Great friends are those whereby you don’t need to talk everyday, but when you finally catch up, it’s as if you had seen them yesterday.

Over three years since I’ve seen @ojkorn but it will never be that long ever again #mybad #ottofunk

I turned 22 in Normandy. There was no cake, no singing friends, no happy words from my family or pretty topless blonde girls.

Just hour after hour of shelling, with a few close calls from stray bullets near the hedgerows thrown into the mix every so often.
That night, before I got the chance to rest, Peter came running into the barn and pulled from under his arm two bottles of wine that he had scavenged from the abandoned farmhouse's wine cellar. We both looked at Unterscharfürhrer Joedicke like kids in a candyshop, asking if we could drink some, and with a smirk on his face, he nodded. "Don't get too fucked, boys...we'll need you tomorrow".
We both got absolutely shitfaced. It was the only way to get our mind off of watching men our age get blown to pieces or smoked right in front of us, yet the early morning mortar strike near our position sobered us up real quick.
It was funny because I always hated wine back home, yet last night I drank it like my damn life depended on it.

Tropas de infantaria da Waffen 9ª Divisão SS Panzer Hohenstaufen, 1944, França.
※※※※

A 9ª Divisão Panzer SS Hohenstaufen foi uma divisão da Waffen-SS criada a partir de uma ordem dada por Hitler no início de 1942, tendo recebido o título de Hohenstaufen mais tarde, em 1943, título este que era uma homenagem a uma das famílias nobres da Alemanha. Juntamente com esta unidade também foi formada a 10ª SS Panzergrenadier Division Frundsberg que assim como a Hohenstaufen, também recebeu um título nobre, o de Frundsberg, sendo considerada uma unidade gêmea da Hohenstaufen.
