I got kind of an old USO show vibe too, which was nice.

As of Ep 3, This episode takes place around S1 of Strike Witches, as CDR Stewart mentions going to London for a meeting, and the Villagers are talking about the Neuroi being close to the village. So it correlates to Season 1 of Strike Witches as it’s been determined that the Neuroi attacks on England stopped after Ep 12 of S1 of the Original Series.

I’m pretty sure there will be some cameos from at least the 501st sometime during this season.

If it ends where I suspect S`1 should end, The 501st should be making a cameo in the Season Ender, which should parallel with the defeat of the Neuroi nest in Gallia

Ep 7

Due to the cameos at the end of the episode
This Episode takes place around Ep 6 of Strike Witches S1 (Time Stamp is [21:42])

(Now the issue is, If they dub it can they get Cherami Leigh, Caitlin Glass, and Jennifer Forrester to dub their characters, even if they have to remote record)

Ep. 9 Takes place after Ep. 12 of Strike Witches S1, depending on the speed of communication and it being military channels and 1945, probably within a couple of hours to a day after the event.
