The Dutch barracks to the Lower Tol, used by the regimenststaf of FJR1. Good to see the many supply containers, which were frequent during the May days off and numerous times were considered for alleged landings of new German paratroopers. In the background the railway from Dordrecht to Moerdijk Bridge. Probably made on May 14, in view of other pictures of the same German photographer.

Nachschubbombe" that fit on the shelves of the bombers and were ejected. Mainly by He-111's They functioned poorly, often by poor opening parachutes. Many German report speaks of unusable inventories, weapons or ammunition due to poor or hard landings of these 'bombs'.
