Hello!

The soldiers in the first photo don´t look like Gebirgsjäger. They seem to have Panzer skulls on their uniforms.

The third photo is well known and appears in several books.

Ritterkreuzträger Oberleutnant der Reserve Franz Holzinger. Picture was taken in 1945 and he commanded a StuG-Abteilung at that time. I have several photos from this serie. The driver in the picture is named Wolf.
