These things have gone quite rare yet, there were not many fights in the Alps. Saw a wreck of a Fieseler Storch near the Obersalzberg and of course many Nazi buildings are still in use. You can find much more things in the Italian Dolomites, but from the first WW.
Understandable...its beautiful there...the area is called Aachen where Hurtgen Forest is, its an area where a particular fighter pilot went down in ww2, never recovered, but the odd thing is I managed to get his oak leaves and swords medal from a guy I know in Belgium but he would never clarify where he got it..kind of odd since the pilots body nor wreck was never recovered, his name was Alfred Druschel, 29 years old, went down in a FW-109 February of 1945 on a bombing run
If the watermill was built around 1660, it is amazing how the timber/logs have lasted for so many centuries in humidity and rain, especialy the wooden wheel. It took very special people to build things like this! Great image...very nostalgic.
