My (only) two pictures of what I believe to be a Wehrmacht band.

As I may have told some of you, my mothers family was very involved in the Second World War on the side of Germany, and we lost 12 family members in the conflict.

These came out of a pile of loose photos that from my grandfathers house.

They don't appear to be pictures of any of my family members that I know of, perhaps a visiting band came by and one of my Great-Uncles took pictures?

It wouldn't be possible to identify the unit or anything with any certainty, would it? I'm very bad at uniforms and wouldn't even know what I was looking at if the information was right in front of me! I unfortunately couldn't tell you where they might have been taken, either. As the loose stack they came from was a pile of pictures of all my different uncles and they served everywhere in Europe from the Eastern wastes to the shores of France.

A German Army band in Lillehammer (Norway). According to their uniforms, it must a band belonging to the 3. Gebirgs-Division (either of Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 138 or 144, of the division itself). The pictures were taken between March and August 1942.

Good photos but unfortunately I can't find a single detail which might help identify the unit/place/timeframe...

Gentlemen,

for some time ago I've already seen this photos written as "Großdeutschland, Heldengedenktag 1943". Today I've found the same photos on the same site, where it is mentioned that this occasion is believed to be happened in Cottbus:

According to another source, in Cottbus (Hermann-Löns-Kaserne) was stationed the Grenadier-Ersatz-Regiment Großdeutschland (in Russian):

So it is possible that these photos are depicting the mythical third GD band under StMM Walter Dreißig! The cuff titles on the right arm can also be seen:
