    Thanks Sturm, unfortunately I have but a very modest collection and budget, but if I find something that might be interesting for you I will let you know. If you find the Belgian stamps you can also let me know.

    I sure do. It's the main entrance of the Chateau, near the famous Galerie des Glaces. The statue is Louis XIV. Versailles was one of the German favorite "tourist" detinations because it inspired Sans Souçi in Potsdam and Schönnbrünn in Vienna. They loved to visit this place on a day trip which would also take them to the Arc de Triomphe in paris ( they would pay tribute to the Unkown soldier grave), the Eiffel Tower, symbol of Paris which they occupied and the Moulin Rouge for their evening parties. Almost every soldier has been to those places and pictures of these monuments are quite commun.

    It would be interesting to find out which unit was based in Jersey (Channel Island, belongs to England, see my stamp collection thread) and Nantes, Atlantic coast south of Britanny and Cognac, south of Nantes going towards Bodeaux. These guys could in fact be part of a Flak battery staff. It is difficult to say where exactly they are, there are barracks and buildings that could be anywhere.
