    Sorry, I cannot read everything on the back of your two photos.

    Photo 1:

    [...] bekamen wir das erste Feuer und gleich richtig! Es war das erste Fahrzeug, was [...] in Norwegen fuhr. (?) Wir hatten dieses erbeutet, deshalb auch nur eine halbe Stunde Glück damit.

    He talks about a first "fire" (in German a term for shooting) and mentions that this was the first vehicle which [...] drove in Norway. (?) They have obtained it but they had only luck with it for half an hour.

    Photo 2:

    [...] wurde ein Mann von uns beerdigt, man kann gut sehen [...] Wut haben.

    A man of us was buried. One can see well [...] our fury.

    Appreciate it! Nice to know a bit more about them both --- sounds like the car in the first photo was first procured by them (German forces) and then shot up, most probably by Norwegian forces, and abandoned after a short while. I just love figuring out these little stories!

    You are right, little stories which we cannot find in history books are always interesting. Don't hesitate if you have another photo for me.
