Can anyone shed any light on these units please?

Article about: Picked up 2 photos and wonder if anyone can ID the units. I think the 251 could be SS, in Russia. They came with pics of Wiking and Das Reich troops.

    Hi Al, the 251 SPW pic is taken in North Africa. The soldier on the far right wear tropical boots.

    The car has W prefix registration plate, so not SS and the crew are Luftwaffe.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade, there was another with them all milling around in their pith helmets, so that would make sense. Happy Christmas!

    Russian post war reprints from German negatives I believe - they have the usual cyrilic stamp and initials on the reverse.
