    Can anyone ID the signature on this document to Matrose Reinhardt?

    It looks either like Whulf or possibly Willy?

    Is there any way to find out more about Reinhardt?


    Best regards!

    Hi Johann,

    at that time Korvettenkapitän Erich Schultze-Jena was Kommandant der SMS Beowulf. The first word Schultze, second word Jena seems to fit.

    Those signatures are always difficult to decipher. Had I not consulted the Kommandantenliste, I wouldn´t have come up with that name. If you know the name, the comparison is easier.

    Do you think Matrose Reinhardt is the same person as Josef Reinhardt, Musketier in Res.Inf.Rgt.255 who is listed as awarded the liberty medal 1st class in Mannerheims order no 68?

    Is Reinhardt a usual name in Germany?
