    I can only suggest that unless these are all related, you separate them out a little so as to reduce the confusion when you get some answers.
    I can tell you that the two tank photos are a Panther tank. The photo with the 4 men in trench coats appear to be Luft. Flak related.

    Are you sure Ralph? I would suggest the second tank photo is that showing the rear of a Königstiger while the Panther in the first photos would be an an Ausf. D or Ausf. G model.

    Hi Thank you for your advice. Should I repost them in groups? All the pictures of men in uniform include my Uncle. I think the double picture was taken when he was an American POW. He spent most of his time on the Eastern Front. He was not in the Luftwaffe. Anything I could find out about his rank would add interest to my family album. There is no way to tell the location of course. I would like to know if the pic with me sitting on the turret is an antiaircraft gun. It doesn't look like it to me but I could be wrong. Any info is valuable.

    From your uncles Chevrons it would appear he attained the rank of Obergefreiter or Senior Lance Corporal i believe. As for the photo with you and your Uncle it looks more like a emplaced artillery either a coastal area or a fortification or some sort, not an Anti-Aircraft gun.

    The artillery piece to looks like a damaged and discarded piece pushed off to the side of a road. Likely given that it is dated 1947.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Thanks, knowing his rank is very useful. Also re the gun, I didn't think it was an AA gun, more likely an artillery piece as you say. Thanks

    I would say MG 34, round barrel not squared off.

    You are quite correct. Too quick of a look.
