Berlin 12 : Russian Sector

Found some old negatives from when I was in Berlin, Germany in the British Army, Royal Army Medical Corps in BMH Berlin 1956-57 -- I have shown some already on Flickr -- these are mostly from my CONTAX III with 50mm f1.5 Sonnar on PERUTZ PEROMNIA 21 DIN film commercially processed, but a few are on my 1953 British ENSIGN SELFIX 16/20 Model II + 75mm f3.5 Ross Xpres lens on Agfa Isopan film, for which I still have the packet and Bill for D.Marks 1.10 !! Here is the Russian War Memorial Garden in the Russian Sector. I went on an 'organised Coach Tour' -- we had to go in uniform and stay with the East German 'Guide. These are on the Perutz film. Under the big mound are 2000 Russian dead soldiers. Under the flat Garden are 5000 Russian dead soldiers. Here concrete slabs from Hitler's Bunker were carved with Russian scenes
