    Not too much. They are definitely two late-war privates of the Waffen-SS. No distinctive unit insignia are worn, though. The man on the left is wearing the two-piece camouflage drill uniform introduced in 1944, so the photo was taken no earlier than that. From the signs in the background, I would say the photo was taken in France (or possibly Belgium).

    Very nice image taken in France/Belgium circa 1944.

    Unusual to see camo clothing worn around town. Also note non regulation use of the "crusher" cap by a Private.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I agree with HPL and Ade, the photograph appears to have been taken somewhere in France/Belgium. It is a nice photograph, thank you for posting it.

    I find the font used on the store in the right background kind of odd... reminds me of 1980s PacMan

    Not unusual to see private soldiers with pistols around town at this later stage in the war: troops were order to be armed when around town due to increasing Resistance activity. They would not wear these at the Front.

    Cheers, Ade.
