Anybody recognize the monument in the background? Looks like a war monument (WW1, Franco-Prussian war?)

What country can it be ?

Harro,

I tried to improve and sharpen your uploaded photo a little bit, only little was possible...

A fallen soldier under the wings of an angel was a common symbol for fallen soldiers of World War I, not only here in Germany.

Sorry for no further help from my side.

Very typical example of a monument of that time:

Harro, you are welcome,

I tried another photo search for just "kriegerdenkmal engel", many photos...

kriegerdenkmal engel https://www.google.com/search?q=krieger ... 00&bih=759

Good luck for your further research... :milwink:

Were they members of SS-Pz.AA 1 / LAH ?
If we can date the photo it will help to narrow down the location...

At least one of them is SS-PzAA1, Panzerspähzug and missing in action since January 1945. I've checked all their late war locations but no luck
