I'm new around here, but I've been bitten by the photo editing bug lately (as everyone will find I'm quite good at), which I also greatly enjoy doing. I'm also a huge WWII buff, myself, and I have very much enjoyed looking through the photos and reading the stories from your trip.
Just for fun, I did some post-production work on the first one:
I did have to make it slightly smaller than the original, due to the size limit where I typically store photos.
Note, after clicking the thumbnail, you can click the photo again for full size.
If you like it, and with your permission, I'd like to do more of these and post them here for you.
