The first series is very interesting - it appears to show the secret Soviet-German training cooperation that was taking place in Russia up until 1940, and also some of the liaison in Poland later on.

This looks interesting, I only though the BEF were in France in 1940 and not Commonwealth troops

Gefangene means prisoners. The Germans liked taking pictures of non european prisioners.

There were indian troops in the BEF in May 1940 - Bernard Manning once claimed there were no err soldiers from what would become pakistan on ythe Mrs Merton show. This inspired a TV documentary on the subject of the four mule companies of the Indian Army Service Corps which joined the British Expeditionary Force in France, and were evacuated from Dunkirk with the rest of the BEF in May 1940.

I am afraid you click on them at your own risk. Whilst there is a lot of shite on ARRSE, you can get engrossed in the interesting threads
