German camera found by British soldier, neat story, cool pics.
WWII: German camera captures Nazi troops at rest - BBC News
Looks like a Voigtländer Bessa? Shame they don't say a bit more about the camera, but a great story with pics.
Voigtländer (German pronunciation: [ˈfoːktlɛndɐ]) is an optical company founded by Johann Christoph Voigtländer (de) in Vienna in 1756 and is thus the oldest name in cameras.

they look like German soldiers to me not Nazi troops.
Agree Heer troops some NCO's and a officer EM or two great story and camera love the UK troops picture also. Thanks for the link. timothy
A small correction here: they are actually KM Coastal Artillerymen. Points to note:
Pointed ends to the shoulder straps
Lower pockets to the tunics are not patch pockets, but are internal type with just an external flap.
Feldmutze: in KM cut (like the style also used by the Waffen SS and Luftwaffe) which has no step down towards the front on the turn up like a Heer M34 cap.
