Hmm...

Was the rebellion attempt almost one and a half years later already being prepared by some of the marching peasants?

Hi Iffig,

You have the country nailed down. Just remember the occasional correlation between peasant marches and rebellions. Also the M/27 tunics visible point to a date slightly later than '27.

You are so close iffig.
Your answer covers the first photo, but not the second, where the bloodles and unsuccessful rebellion is on the way...
Read your Wiki more carefully! :D
