    I would be guessing at Narvik, my knowledge of Norwegian related war history is pretty minimal apparently.... I can't see why the photo is special though.

    I am guessing the only correct piece of clothing is the Kriegsmarine cap.
    It is taken in Narvik 1940

    Is it one of the Polish commanders/soldiers relating to the Battle of Narvik 1940?

    'Allied troops landed in Narvik to prevent germans from using it as a transfer harbour to transport iron ore form Sweden, and also hoped that remaining Norvegian units aided by allies can stop germans here and then counteratack. Germans were repealed from city and withdrawned into the mountains but in may 1940 war started in france and allies retreated to focus on french front without being defeated.


    Allied commander at the Ankenes region: (from 17th May) Gen. Bohusz-Szyszko.
    Allied Commander all land forces: Gen. Behouart

    The only Allied tank force present in Norway
    in 1940 was the French 342nd and 343rd ”Compagnie Autonome de Chars” (Independent
    Tank Company), equipped with 15 Hotchkiss H-39 light tanks (342rd, Capt. Dublineau) and 15 Renault FT-17 (343rd).

    Three Battalions from the French “1st. Légerère de Chasseurs Alpins” (arriving 27th April in Foldvik and Skånland), without most of their ski equipment).

    Two Battalions French Foreign Legion, Commander: Col. Magrin-Verneret, the “13th Legion d´Etranger Demi-Brigade”, arrived 5th May, (1st Batallion: Maj. Boyer-Resses, 2nd Battalion: Maj. Gueninchaut)
    Most of the men were Germans, Spanish, and English, and some had participated in the Spanish Civil War)

    Four Battalions Polish ”Chasseur de Nord”, the Carpathian “Podhale” Brigade
    1st Demi-Brigade (Col. Chlusewicz) w/ 1st Battallion (Maj. Kobylinski) and 2nd Battalion (Col. Dec)
    2nd Demi-Brigade (Col. Kobylecki) w/ 3rd Battalion (Lt.Col. Mackowski) and 4th Battalion (Maj. Jasowski)'
