Well, first of all, i want to thank Timo to open this topic for me. I am very gratefull for that :)

Yesterday i found out it is indeed the Dome des Invalides in Paris. So, thats one mystery less, to worry about.

People on the forum i know Timo from, think they are Dutch Soldiers wearing P37 or P40 jackets. I, myself, have to take there worth, because i do not know much about the Dutch Military myself at the moment (shame on me :P )

Supposedly from the Prinses Irene Brigade. But there are words, it is not the PIB and the photo's are from after ww2 (post?war). Because the thing (dont know the name) on the shoulder says: Je Maintiendrai. So probably from just after the war, perhaps..?

But then again a good relative of me, thinks it actually are soldiers from the PIB, so, i still have to find that out.

Looks a bit like Horse Guards parade, London, where trooping the colour takes place?
