Can anyone please help me decipher what is written as captions for these photos. They seem to be the names of the individuals shown. Thank you.

Stettin, +1941 Melita...?

Isigkeit, Horst
Tapiau, Ostpr.(eussen)

Herklotz, Karl
Rathen, +vor ?

Hosse
Rheinland

Märkel
Plauen
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Gentlemen:

WOW !! Thank you so much for the help on these. These men were all part of the SS SchutzKommmando on the Obersalzberg. A couple of these guys actually ended up in the SS Begleitkommando. Thanks again.
