Found this photo awhile ago in bad quality & watermarks all over it on some foreign website and just recently just found a good quality version. The only caption for it Ive found is saying that they are Estonians (evident from the collar patches) from the 20th SS Grenadier Division. Either way it’s a pretty cool photo!
