River Mission Part II - German Pioneers

Here is another scouting party trying to negotiate the river. These guys are Revell German Pioneers, which is how they called their combat engineers. These guys actually have to rely on muscle power to move upstream and don't even have their weapons at the ready. And who knows what's just around the next bend of the river. Let's just hope they don't run into any enemy patrols.

  1. My grandfather, a first-generation American, had to quit learning German in school when WWI broke out. However, he DID become a "German Engineer" by way of the draft and the 89th Division in St. Mihiel Offensive, France, 1918! http://books.google.com/books/about/A_History_of_Company_A_314th_Engineers_8.html?id=yYvGAAAAMAAJ
