    Shoo Fly


    Two members of a Crusader tank’s crew write home before setting off on patrol in the Western Desert, 28 August 1942. Note the mosquito nets round their faces to keep the flies away.

    1. Mosquito nets with opened arms/legs have no sence... Seems it's just a simple "air filter"

    2. Nah no air filter.. simple protective nets against flies.. there were billions of these beasts so at least these protective "hats" served as a little relief..
