Interesting note:
The Crewman on the left is wearing the rare fabric armored crew helmet. the ear pads,which the right ear can be seen in the book, are secured by metal press studs around the edge. I am sure he has it on for warmth. They are scarce even in photographs! and there is no mention in the books caption, so it might have been over looked. In the book one can plainly see the snap buttons! Really neat!

I was going to ask that, but that means he cut the radio communications wire!

Thats exactly what I thought as well! there is an older book called Waffen SS Uniforms in Color by Andrew Steven and Peter Amodio. In their book on page 47 there is an example of an original. They also mention it's restrictions outside of the tank due to the wire configurations attached to the piece. You are right, he would of had to cut the wires that lead out of the back of the helmet. I wonder why since it doesn't appear to be a very warm headgear item? Maybe shortages of warmer headgear?
Very Interesting point and observation.

Karl,
Are those two black boxes behind the PAK in the last picture Ammo boxes?  That's my guess anyway.  Something like that would be big enough to hold a couple air tanks for our PAK, if you could even find one of those.

I would think they are.

They have white lettering on the lid and the x pressed into them that every other German storage container seems to have.

I'm liking the canvas y-straps!

Any idea of what date the photograph is?

I just noticed the question, Sorry Neo. The first Photo itself was taken in North Africa along with the other two. I got them from " Rommel's Army in Africa", by Dal McGuirk.1993.
There is no date on the photo but he looks like a Desert Vet, worn tunic etc., most likely middle to end of 1942, just a guess.
