@Seth

Aren't they Slovenian auxiliaries of Italian Army? I think these helmets are M33's. Plus uniforms looks Italian like used by aforementioned Slovenians?

"Wilderness train" has stopped to the "station". At the front an uparmored Ford, that is playfully called the "Rommel".

Swedish volunteers armed with PPD-34/38's, soldier on the left has also Husqvarna m/1907 pistol under his belt. Karelia, June 1941.

And one more shot of PPD-34/38 on which you can see very akward magazine that caused a lot of issues that were resolved in PPD-40.
