Munasiedlung is awesome! Jubifahrer and I have been there in 2007 (6?) too.

Muna was short for "ammunition" and the Munas were facilities where the Nazies made explosives.

Notice the swastika shaped building

Guess where that case came from :mrgreen:

That show we were two weeks ago is related to the Muna peoples.
Their displays are great. They have the biggest rations collection I ever saw. Hagen, how did they got you out there again?! :wink:

I was on duty, so we can´t make it there. :cry:

US Army snowmobile??

Thats a Weasel tracked snow vehicle 8) :o Its WW2 vintage, seriously ahead of its time.
It was designed especially for the 10th Mountain division. It made up a big percentage of the divs vehicle strength.
Note the RCW box in the back, though it should be a 4 in 1 mountain ration for total authenticity :mrgreen:

Those ration pictures.. :D :D :D
