The second one 

looks like a Caudron Luciole. The earlier versions had a much lower aspect ratio fin than the later. On this one the upper wing cut out is much larger too. But for the Salmson nailed to the front I'd say C270, but that should have a Renault AFAIK. A later Salmson powered Luciole, with a taller fin and no centre section cut out, appeared in "The Blue Max", both as the RE8 and in German markings covered on cod-lozenge
