    Generalmajor - Who am I


    Recommended Posts

    I would be most grateful if some learned member of this forum could help me ID this Generalmajor please.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

    On the reverse of the photo is a green stamp – verboten 1943 and the Vienna photographers stamp (Album Kobo) . 

    many thanks for looking,
