    It really was an easy one, like you told... Anyway, here's my next. Our good friend Rising Sun* would say "easy for those who know, hard for those who don't..."

    Right stab in the dark here, i'm going to say 1942-ish, German troops training for Operation Sealion, north French coast?

    Hi Iron,
    they're, of course, German troops. The original caption of the picture says "German Assault Boat Engineers..." But is a different Country, different Operation and different year, too. I can tell you that they're preparing an Operation in a Northern European Country...

    I'm 54, but i still consider myself a boy, too!!!
    I'm sorry, isn't Belgium/Holland invasion and isn't 1940. I have another little clue... The Country is an ex-USSR Rebublic, that faces on the Baltic Sea...

    I think we should prevent Mr. flamethrowerguy from take part to puzzles related to the German Army...
    Nedless to say that the answer is correct. Here's the original caption, from the book Backbone of the Wehrmacht - The German K98k Rifle by Richard D. Law :

    German Assault Boat Engineers loading supplies into their assault boat in preparation for Operation Osel, in Esthonia. (US National Archives photo dated September 11, 1941.

    I have no idea, but I suspect that the saluting officer on right of the picture is the odd man out.

    His uniform looks close to German but some details suggest it isn't, or that it's German based but allowing foreign elements.

    Which could make him anything, except that the helmeted SS? officer on the left has a chest full of medals which suggests it's well into the war rather than pre-war.

    So a wild guess is that the saluting officer is a member of one of the units raised from non-German or perhaps even POW sources.

    It's not the Wiking bunch is it? The chap on the right says Finnish to me.
