    Another great photo. Looks like Sauke saw some action at some point, he's sporting the EKII spangen & KVKIx. I believe he's sitting with RJL Artur Axmann, before Axmann lost his arm in combat on the eastern front, dating this photo between spring 1940 and fall 1941.

    The photo dates from later then what Scott does date it. => the large NSFK glider pilots badge is the clue in this. This award was founded with date of 26.01.1942 => so this picture clearely dates from behind then, probably the earlyest April 1942 or may.

    As Karl Sauke was a Silver C wearer his large NSFK is a award of the exchange type (So called Bedingungsgruppe II) and the earlyest known award date is 01.05.1942.

    Very interesting picture non the less :cheers:

    Cordial greetings,
