Iconic images of the German Occupation

This page contains a substantial collection of pictures taken shortly before, during and immediately after the German Occupation of Jersey. More pictures of the Occupation years can be found in our Aviation picture gallery, the Liberation pages, the story of the Vega, a page devoted to Channel Island Occupation Society pictures, and various other pages linked from our main German Occupation introductory page.

To see a larger version of any of the thumbnail pictures just click on it. If the strip of pictures across the top of the first section does not display in a single line on your screen you may need to adjust screen resolution. In some browsers this can be done and then reversed again by holding down the 'CRTL' key while turning the mouse scroll wheel or pressing '+' and '-'.
