    No cap visible, but note that the Brit MP's are eyeing this LSSAH soldier with suspicion, apparently as a result of him having been captured with a wad of cash (Francs?)--maybe he went "Kelly's Heroes" on his own:

    I think the British MP is trying to buy his tunic!

    More likely the MP is saying " You do realize that this cash is now mine, right"

    The men seem to be relieved the war is over for them and they have survived. They do not know that years of brutal Soviet captivity awaits them.
