I found these in a box of old photos which I obtained at an auction. The first seems to have been cut out of a group photo, and the second has an inscription on it stating in German "In memory of my love". Also is written "Werner July 29 1917", along with 29/VII 17. Since many of the correspondences in this box were between The German and German-American family members, I assume that the date in English is to make Werner's passing clear to the American reader. In my eyes, the man with the rifle, and the man 2nd from the right, middle row, bear a resemblance. Could this be the same soldier?
