Amazing WWII era colour photos (PDF file) depicting the relocation of ethnic Germans from Bessarabia and northern Bukovina in September 1940.

The relocation was part of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact of 1939 and most of the Germans received new land in the occupied areas of Western Poland. At the end of WWII they were again resettled to escape the advancing Red Army.

No, not a WWI relic but the Goliath a small tracked vehicle carrying a demolition charge which could be directed to a target by wire control.

(regrettably) Also my war
