There seems to be some anomalies. The Girls are wearing trousers and leather gaiters over leather boots. The men have similar gaiters.

The normal uniform issued for Land Army Girls was

The uniforms normally consisted of the following: -

 

2 short sleeved shirts

1 green pullover

2 pairs of socks

1 pair of shoes

1 bib and brace overall

1 hat

1 pair of rubber boots

1 long (very thin!) Mackintosh for the winter

Could they be ATS? But WHAT ARE THE MEN. also THERE IS A SMALL DOG.

Didn't Germans have a collar fitted to their shirts? Although I know very little to nothing about German WWII gear.

Could the men possibly be Home Guard or a local unit helping on the fields?
