All are from Wikimedia, and 2-4 are from the Bundesarchiv, so there shouldn't be any copyright issues. The last one are Italian soldiers.

The German Federal Archives (i.e. Bundesarchiv) should be a good source anyhow...

Problem with bundesarchiv is that a lot of their images are published under Creative Commons Share-Alike licence. The problems with that being: "Adaptations of the work are always freely available to use and remix.

Here are three photos of my Great grandfather and a few of his friends in the Wehrmacht. All I know is that he commanded a squad of antitank guns and served on the Polish, French, and Russian fronts. I know they are not the best quality, but I figured I might as well try. These are all from personal family photos.
