Waffen-SS soldiers give aid to an injured Soviet pilot after his obsolete Polikarpov U-2 plane used for daytime reconnaissance and night bombing missions was shot down in the summer of 1943. The manner in which the soldier stepping over the pilot is wearing his gas mask suggests these men are from a motorcycle reconnaissance unit. They are all wearing the early style “Palm” pattern camouflage smock. The soldier kneeling on the right is wearing a camouflage field cap introduced in June 1942.
Notice the early version short gas mask canister.
