  1. I always keep an eye on threads, even if I don't comment on them, including threads that interest me as an 'outsider' (as in I don't collect such photos etc) such as this one. Every addition is welcomed and appreciated.
  2. He's just a Luftwaffe NCO so chances of identifying him are extremely thin.
  3. Contributed by AlecH Image: Citation - Ehrenblatt "Soldaten der 81 Infanty Division" - July 1940
  4. My German is nowhere near strong enough to translate it but I would say that you might need to provide much clearer (and larger) images to help someone work out what it says.
  5. Generalleutnant Kurt-Jürgen Freiherr von Lützow Born: 07 Aug 1892 Died: 20 Jul 1961 Kdr Infanterie-Regiment 89 Kdr 12.Infanterie-Division Kdr XXXV.Armeekorps RK: 15 Aug 1940 EL: 21 Oct 1941
  6. The soldier who wore that Waffenrock wasn't an officer, he was a Kanonier.
  7. NARA in the US and BA-MA in Germany. Possibly even the Russian archives who are starting to publish stuff online.
  8. There is information on Art.Rgt 64 at the Lexikon website whose link has been provided on some of the other forums where you have posted this request. I would say that it would be difficult to find any in depth details but you could always trawl through the archives and see if there is any mention of them in the War Diaries of the units it served under. Major Walter Kuhn commanded II/Art.Rgt 64 until 31st Oct 1935. It is a common name so tracking any details down for the actual soldier without any further details might prove very difficult.
  9. Is that Otto von Oelhafen's signature? You are right in saying these relatively cheap examples can hold great surprises. I remember seeing one quite a few years ago signed by Oakleaves winner and Normandy related General Friedrich Dollmann and regretted not buying it as it was really cheap. Get it in to the Signature Database

  11. Blaschke, Hanns

    No idea I'm afraid. This signature is on a citation to an official in Vienna.
  12. Hanns Blaschke Born: 01 Apr 1896 Died: 25 Oct 1971 Beigeordneter und Ratsherr Wien Bürgermeister Wien Held the rank of SS-Brigadeführer. Convicted of treason in 1948 he was sentenced to 6 years imprisonment.
