Really nice photo,having it in colour makes it all the better. I was checking to see if this is a slattie, but it dont throw out any clues. I was looking for a round muffler but cant see it properly.

@Marc. I couldn't find another photo of that Jeep :oops: .

There is a very good chance that the woman has had her home blasted into oblivion by German, American, Canadian or British forces. And maybe her whole family is now dead. What devastation they faced.

She obviously lived through the First World War and now a Second. Must have been horrible for her. :(
