    Commandoes yes(Not British, the cap badge is a good hint). And you are in the wrong country. One more hint: It is taken in 1944.

    Thanks to everyone for all the clues. A team effort, absolutely. I would have guessed British Commandos. I'll get one up tomorrow.

    Hint: Air cover, Soviet, was lacking or non-existent in this sector of the Kursk Offensive.

    This picture is reportedly from the Prokorovka sector of the Battle of Kursk.
    Sources: Walter S. Dunn, Silvester Stadler, Ernest Klink (Burkhalder finally transferred him to the Russian front ha), G.A. Koltunov
    apparently confirm Dunn's placement of the 5th Guards Tank Army - 18th, 29th and 2nd Guards Tank Corps (at last 450 tanks).
    I'll post a new picture in a day or so.
