It seems I stirred a hornet's nest with my Hebmuller comments, and violated my own rule about posting without comment.

Here is the unfiltered image, which is inconclusive. I retract my comments about the hubcaps.

I will however go out on a limb and say the hubcap of this Kubelwagen has a bullet hole in it.

Anymore information on that ambulance beetle? Does anybody have other photos?

Then there is this other one from what I seem to remember was an exposition in Brussels around 1948 or early 1949. However, it may be more of a patient transport type of configuration instead of an ambulance due to the absence of the roof mounted supply chest, frosted windows and ambulance cross.

the writing on the building in the photo above is rather prophetic - the reunification of germany is above all a matter for the germans alone

First I also thought it would have been written on the building - but after a closer look it might be written on the picture...

The logo on the window is the one of the "Gesellschaft für Deutsch-Sowjetische Freundschaft" (Society for German-Soviet Friendship). I dare to say that ist was written on the wall...

It was not about the intention of the writing or other circumstances, but these lettres are not influenzed by the wodden structure below. And I doubt the first line would reflect the light so bright when it is placed in the shaddow

The letters were probably made of wood or paperboard. The "N" and the "T" on the right are slightly offset because they are fixed to the framework of the window.

But no matter if written on the wall or not: There is a mistake in the text. It should be "ALLEM" and nothing else.
