Possibly someone from the aristocracy being buried.

Here is a Heer Chaplain presiding over a Luftwaffe funeral. I believe Goring forbade chaplains in Luftwaffe ranks.

The crown is a royal not a mere aristocracy crown , and yes , Goering forbade the chaplains into his" Luftwaffe . My Luftwaffe is nazi saids the pompous kerl . but as most of the members of the LW were believers , they got in the need of lend a chaplain from the Heer or the KM . curiously the Waffen SS of Himmler allowed the muslims of the Handschar division to have a imam and to the finns of the volunteer finnish bataillon of the Waffen SS to have a protestant chaplain .

Thank you Bayern for your informative reply. If the crown is a royal symbol I wonder who was being buried.

A Heer officer pays his respects to fallen comrades. A Chaplain can be seen standing far right of photo.

Very nice photo showing a KM Chaplain. Do you know where the photo was taken. Seems some family were present, widow perhaps?

Here is an in the field photo showing a Chaplain performing what I think is Holy Communion.
