Westfeldzug Storch, JG 2 emblem

currently on offer here from koelsch333 Ebay sales and posted here courtesy Marco

Nicely camouflaged Fi 156 C Storch "CG+BF" possibly belonging to JG 2 (note emblem under windscreen, thank you Tomas!). The seller identifies this as being from a 30 I.D photo group from the French campaign Westfeldzug - the camouflage finish appears to be 70/71 splinter with 02 overspray. In the JG 2 history similar types were used to scout out forward landing fields ahead of the advance.
