Alcohol or sleep deprivation....not sure which one contributed to that!  But yes, LEFT track...thanks Steve. ;)

That mystery object behind the passenger tow hook may be a Reehmann prewar horn, it looks very close

Nice pics
I see one HT has Peru, Indiana on hood, that’s down the road from me. Wonder If one of the crew is still Alice and in Peru?

COOL Pictures!  Thanks for posting!

That's fascinating they painted the Unit emblem on the fender and on the Jerry cans!  The Halftrack appears broken down and towed into position.  Unfortunately I've seen/experienced that before in person.  I bet that's a Maintenance Section CCKW that is parked right behind the broken down Halftrack.

Interesting too that they attached the "Minen" flags to the headlight grills!
