Can you tell something about the locations? Is the one with that heavy French tank also from the eastern front? I never thought that the Germans would have transported those anywhere far...

I found an answer for myself:

http://www.wwiivehicles.com/html/france/char_b1.html
PzKpfw B-2 740(f): Issued to Panzer units in France from 1941 on. Used in Jersey and Guernsey. Were issued in 1943 to the 14th and 21st Panzer divisions when they were being reformed. Only a few saw duty outside of France. Four were used by the 223rd Panzerkompanie in Russia, and 7 were used by the SS Prinz Eugen division in the Balkans.
By the way, there's something slightly funny in the last picture. It looks quite summer-like, notice all the leafy bushes and that the men are not wearing any gloves... but the fur caps nevertheless!
