    wrong on every count (except about me being cruel... probably) :) (I wasn't totally sure how fun this question might get :))

    but AFAIK the uniform, weapon, equipment, place and man are all from the same country and it was taken during ww2 :)

    Hi Vegar - he could be presumably if he filled in the right paperwork and waited several years, or married one, but I'm afraid he's not Greek :)

    sorry not really all that close, but I can't give away too much yet - also Greeks wear silly pointy shoes :)

    I would say the rifle is a good clue perhaps....

    Not sure about the rifle, was he on the axis? The rifle looks german-like because of the little dot on the butt stock.

    Yes he is - well done - you should identify the rifle if you can though, just to give it closure :)

    Well, i just call it "The Swedish Mauser", but as many of you may not know about it, it is also called Gevär m/96.
