    I like the interwar uniforms of royal Albania - look very sharp, but I don't think Albanian sailor was the first WW2 victim. If we are to look at axis countries, the first hostilities began with invasion of Carpatho-Ukraine by the Hungarian forces in 1938.

    And this drawing shows a cavalry corporal of the Greek army, during the Greco-Italian war. As you can see for your self, it comes from a Greek Defece Ministry brochoure, and depicts greek army uniforms of WWII.
    Also, regarding the picture that's supposed to show "Greek POWs", I too must say, that it's more than obvious, that the people shown, are in no case Greek Army members, probably though communist insurgents during the retreat, that followed their final defeat.
