In this episode I talk to Paul Hilditch from the Northern WWII Association. Paul is a Second World War re-enactor based in the north of England.
He is part of a group that portrays Panzer Grenadier Division Großdeutschland. An elite Division within the regular German army. They served almost exclusively on the Russian front and are depicted in the form of 1./ Kompanie, complete with Sd.Kfz. 251 Auf-C halftrack. They portray German Soldiers on the Eastern Front during the late war period from1943-45.
Paul owns a Czech built OT810 which was produced after the war to the same basic pattern as the German halftrack. He has had it modified to be very close to an original Sd.Kfz. 251.
Below are pictures of Paul’s Halftrack on manoeuvres.
