Old photos. 1982.
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Old photos. 1982.

Here's a few old photos from APG. You can tell they are 1982 since concrete pads weren't installed until 1987. Guess who the early AFV News member at the StuG III is. The box car sat next to "Anzio Annie" but has long since been removed. Rick

In Photo of StuG III is of Armin Sohns. He was a crew member of this model in Russia, and later commanded a Hetzer in Germany. Unfortunately, he passed away many years ago. I met him through AFV News in the early 1980s.

Some problems with old 126 film can be edited out. I also have some old 110 films to try to reprint and edit, circa 1981. Rick

Thanks, Rick. I never met Armin Sohns personally, or even saw a photo of him. But he was a great correspondent - very patient with my many questions about Panzers, way back when (70s).

Geoff,
You're welcome. He had much first hand knowledge of StuG (his favorite) and the Hetzer. He used to live in Rothsville, PA which is in Lancaster county. I lived close to him. Had some nice trips to Aberdeen, MD and Carlisle, PA (MHI). Rick
