Got Myself A Real Gun Now..

2 June 1941..28th Maori Battalion soldier in Alexandria after being cleaned up from his escapade on the island of Crete..

Noteable is his side arm a hugely sought after German MP38/40 machine gun. The Maori soldier in my mind quite rightly was supreme at confiscating highly effective German weapons for his own use which no doubt is the reason the Aussie Official photographer shot this excellent photo.
