I would read it as:

Ing. Hans Lisberg oder Lieberg.

It´s quite interesting. His medals Show that he was Militärbeamter or civil serveant in the armed forces (40 years service medal) and that he was a Reserveoffizier who became quite well decorated in WW1. It´s an ebay-pic from richdaw - isn´t it?

Thank you for pointing out that it is Ing. Hans Lisberg or Hans Lieberg.  I will search through he Rangliste/Schematismus that i have and see if I can locate him.

I purchased the card off ebay.de and not from Richard Dawkins, but the card is identical to the one Richard was selling. So he  either signed two photos or I have bought the card that Richard Dawkins had previously sold.  Either way I am pleased to own it. Regards,

I have brought this topic back up because I think I may have identified my man.

I now believe his name is Johann Leiber and he was a Haupleut (1 Nov 1917) K.k. Landwehr verhätnis der Evidenz.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
