I would dearly love to find out the rank, branch of service and who this gentleman is. I have been told he may hold the rank of Oberfeldpolizeidirektor - GFP but haven't been able to prove it.

Looks like he is wearing a Romanian Order of the Crown medal around his neck which would narrow the search a little bit. Stiil I can't ID him.

Cheers,

Larry

Nice photos. This official is an Admin official, which is different than a Sonderfuhrer/Wartime official.

Without seeing the color of the tabs and the center layer of the shoulder boards, it is rather impossible to figure out what his career group is. Great photos though.

Any chance of tracing him thru the order hanging around his neck?

Hi Larry,

I have tried but no luck yet.

Here is a portrait I picked up on Ebay a while ago.

It was misidentified as a pilot portrait and no-one bid on it. I picked it up for $5.00.

Cheers,

Larry

Morten, I am most envious! Great image. KVK2s were rare for these guys at the NCO level. He must have really contributed to the war effort or performed some sort of non combatant heroics.

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
