I would guess that these are German WW1 postcards. The caps on the soldiers look German to me and the downed planes look like it has the English Roundel http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_...rce_roundels on the side.

Thanks for replies! Yes, postcards are of the German origin. They have not been postally used, although they have some handwritten insriptions - in German fractur script (very hard to decipher - even to modern Germans)... but, on the bottom right postcard is start of the insription something readable, and it says : Inglisches..." which means English, so, as ekbustad wrote, these seems to be RAF airplanes crushed by the Germans.
