might be 6.5mm Mannlicher Schoenauer of the Greek army (i think i saw epsilon on the headstamp).

I thought that as a possibility for the lower round in pic 2, or maybe Mannlicher Carcano. The upper round in the same pic looks like 30-06 US.

 

The round in the bottom pic has me stumped for now - the short neck and distinct taper doesn't look like any I know. I'd assume it's about 7,5 - 7,62mm calibre, but I doubt the bullet belongs.

I'm wondering about a 7,92x57 with a shortened neck. Turkish use could make sense.

Top one    looks like   .30-06 or 7.9 x 57 mm, can't tell either way

Second one in the same photo appears to be a 6.5 x 54mm Mannlicter Shoenauer .  (Base diameter should be 11.353 mm)

Last one, I suspect is a 7.65 x 53 Mauser (Base diameter should be 11.887 mm)

 

Case length and base diameter are always helpful when trying to identify cartridge cases

 

Hope that helps
