    I doubt it is a regular platoon. I count 48 in the picture, which is a tad more than a German platoon.There are two officers in the picture and most German platoons were lucky if they had one. On the officer's left is a jr. NCO and on their right is one with a decoration. My guess is that this is some sort of training class and the four in the middle are the cadre.
