more Schlacht Bf 109 & Fw 190 -Luftwaffe ebay photo find

Nice image of an LG 2 Schlacht 109 - note the rather rare 'bear-wielding-axe' emblem of 5.(Schlacht)/LG 2 on the cowling plus the Schlacht triangle. The 'bear' is actually depicted on the emblem chopping up an umbrella (presumably Chamberlain's?), a throw-back to LG 2's Jabo Battle of Britain campaign...

currently on offer here from Zurich-based seller sturmvogel1, the Fw 190s are probably machines belonging to Schlachtgeschwader 1
