The photograph shows a member of the Zollgrenzschutz. These where the German Customs Border Guards from 1937 to 1945. 
The role of the Border Zoll was to not only manage border immigration but to police it too. They also managed goods in and out of the country as an administrative force.

The eagled cuff title and patterned braided crusher are to show us that he is a part of the Zollgrenzschutz.

Photograph shows a underground defensive bunker made by and inhabited by Soldaten, unfortunately you can’t tell what kind but they can be seen peering out on watch. 
The photograph  seems to be taken in the field or could be part of a training course but more than likely Soldaten in the field. 
The bunker defence looks well built and strong, this is where MG emplacements would play a good defensive strategy. This was also shelter and protection for Soldaten and a way of being strong and stable in the field.

This photo is a comedic photo that was taken in the field by Soldaten. If is showing a Soldaten inside the top of a field kitchen pot and chimney to look like a boat to which he is using a ladle as ore with his fellow Soldaten joking around with him.

It was common for Soldaten at the front to joke and perform comedic acts to keep morale up and stay happy.

I have more comedic posts to come so stay tuned !

The Mauser Kar 98 was the standard rifle of the whole German Forces. It was introduced in 1934. 
The 98k was used in the First World War but was modified and made more efficient and affective by shortening the barrel of the rifle. The bolt also became curved too. The Rifle shoots 7.92 Caliber rounds, the same of which are used for MGs of the German Forces. Each rifle can hold a clip of five rounds. 
As seen in the photo this was a common way to place rifles for display and in ceremony’s but also for easy pick up at camps.
