These are Luftwaffe guys, and the rifles are definitely real (captured). Mannlicher design of some type, I think. Maybe Belgian or Dutch rifles?

It's a Hotchkiss Mle 1914 with regular WW1 French flash hider.

A late-production Polish wz. 28 lmg I would say ("fishtail" butt-stock).

carius wrote:Polish firearms


Which, I suppose, wouldn't be clear, hadn't guys in the right worn Polish "polówka" wz. 37 head-gear (a soft cap featuring traditional Polish four-cornered top). In 1939 wz. 08/15 lmg, Polish for MG 08/15, was typical machine gun in artillery and trains.
