"Yes, I do believe this was at OP51. The dirt road in the near background running right to left went from the OP to the border crossing. That tree wasn't far from the 50 meter sign, which was to the left of the photo. That tree can be seen on…"

Tell us a little about you now.
I live in Waidhaus, Bavaria, directly on the border to Czech Republic. I work in a historic association named "Heimatkundlicher Arbeitskreis Waidhaus". More Information abou this association you can see under: http://www.heimat-waidhaus.de.

We have a exhibition this year about the Border from Waidhaus, from the year 1945 till today. To control the border there was the 2nd ACR, 1-1 CAV responsible. In the near of Waidhaus there was any Observation Points and Bunker. On the Dragoon Base-Site i find some Pictures, where i think they was made in Waidhaus.
Can you help me, to find someone, who has made Observations and Border Patrols in Waidhaus?
Maybe they have some Photos, who was interested for us.
Do you have a web site?

Hello Andreas, hope all is going well, did you ever get your hat we were looking for? Things has sure changed since I was there last in 1964. You have a couple of photos from me, pass one with my squad (Patrol) at the Generals inspection. Did you ever make a print out in english? I sure would love to have one, you send me a copy in German but I was un able to get it translated. If you should get a copy in English. I sure would appreciate a copy to go in my files.
You take care, best wishes.
