    I'm not sure about this, but I'm leaning toward Belgian in the second photo - the calf-length lace-up leather boots & ammo pouches look that way, and of course the Adrian helmets.......

    Pretty sure first group is not American since I would doubt they would all be captured in those type uniforms rather than regulation GI battle togs. I would guess Belgian or Dutch.
