    These look like Russians...or at least in Russian uniform.

    Both wearing Soviet Army infantry uniform, made by the regulation of 1943. Man on the left is a Sergeant, man on the right - Lance-Sergeant.

    POW's from nearby camp (1941-1942) ? Or occupation troops post 1944 ?

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] I suspect the latter, in light of the soldier with the MP40 in the other photo.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] POW in camp with watches, waistbelt and star emblem? No way.

    Yup, the second more likely. Funny thing though you mention watches on soviet troops.

    I'm almost sure that watches are a kind of trophy. It's small, and wristband looks narrow, while Soviet-made watches for men of pre-WWII period were 1,5 times larger than these. And, it's unlikely that sergeant can afford it.
