• CATEGORIES: Features, International • TAGS: .

Doron Segal from Israel shared these photos. In memory of his father, Doron has rebuilt a 1942 GPW with the number “4062”.  His father served in the “Samson Foxes“.

The two photos below are from a fifteenth club event in Israel, 2010 (see more current photos here).  Doron can be seen driving his GPW in the first one:
