  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. Generalleutnant Friedrich-Wilhelm von Loeper Born: 3rd Aug 1888 Died: 7th Oct 1983 Kommandeur 81 Infanterie Division Kommandeur 10 Infanterie Division Kommandeur Panzer Division Nr 178 Kommandeur Panzer Division Tatra Ritterkreuz - 29th sep 1941 Image: EK II citation
  5. 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.

  7. Roland Freisler Born: 30 Oct 1893 Died: 03 Feb 1945 - killed during an air raid on Berlin by the USAAF Director of the Prussian Ministry of Justice Secretary of State Prussian Ministry of Justice Secretary of State Reich Ministry of Justice Attended Wannsee Conference President of the People's Court (Volksgerichtshof)
  8. The soldier who wore that Waffenrock wasn't an officer, he was a Kanonier.
  9. NARA in the US and BA-MA in Germany. Possibly even the Russian archives who are starting to publish stuff online.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  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.
  13. Blaschke, Hanns

    No idea I'm afraid. This signature is on a citation to an official in Vienna.
  14. Baldur Benedikt von Schirach Born: 09 May 1907 Died: 08 Aug 1974 Reichsjugendführer & Gauleiter Nationalsozialistischer Deutscher Studentenbund 4./Inf.Rgt Grossdeutschland Gauleiter Wien Sentenced to 20 years imprisonment at the Nuremburg Trials. Released 1966.
  15. Hauptmann Fritz Selzer. Highest rank reached: Major d.R Adjutant LG-1 Flieger Ersatz Btl III Image: Wehrpass
  16. Good to hear, I look forward to seeing the images.
  17. Hauptmann Herbert Maedge Erg.Gruppe (S) 1 Staffelkapitän 3.(Go)/Schleppgruppe 2 Kdr IV/Fallschirm.Ers.u.Ausb.Rgt 1
  18. Fingers crossed in that case. I look forward to hearing the outcome.
  19. Not knowing Canadian areas etc I'm assuming Red Deer isn't far from you in which case that is another pointer that it belongs to you otherwise what would the odds be that a SB that you bought and which got lost in the mail has rocked up just down the road instead of somewhere like Toronto or Vancouver?
  20. That is a coincidence - have you contacted them?
