    My pleasure.

    Troops were issued doubled sided cloth battle practise bands which were coloured red on one side, yellow on the other, so each side could be identified to the opposing force. Worn on the steel helmet.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I didnt know that Ade. Definitely good to know, and I can say that I havent really noticed these armbands on other photos before. Something I will pay attention to from now on.

    Id like to point out the shoulderboards on the Anwarter portrait are what I think to be from Heeres-Unteroffizierschule Eisenach. I could be wrong, but the cypher looks the same as examples I have seen.

    First one:


    "Am 23.6.41.
    Beim Zollhaus
    [...]
    [...].
    Gefallene russ. Grenzer."


    ...meaning:


    "On 23 June 41
    at the customs station
    [...]
    [...].
    Fallen Russian border guards.."


    The fact that this photo was taken the day after the start of the Russian Campaign and that these are the bodies of border guards killed at their customs station means that these men were among the first Soviet casualties of Operation Barbarossa.

    Not sure about the geographical designation, it looks something like "Schustan"


    The second one:


    "Der [...], der nicht sterben wollte-"


    ...which can both mean:


    "The [...] who wouldn't die"


    or:


    "The [...] who did not want to die."


    Something sinister, in either case. Again, not sure about the second word.

    That soldat must have been a pretty weird guy to not only take personal photos of those men, but to add captions as well. They are interesting photos, though, since they are so early. June 23rd happens to be my birthday as well!
