I'm not making much sense of it. Others please correct.

Diese Tier? ihnen? Karl Segar
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

The photo title says Karl Sagar.
maybe the rest of the image might give a clue.

Thank you both. I see why it is confusing!

OK
I have seen the other thread and both sides of the card.

Is it possible that
" großes /hohes Tier " [big shot/ big cheese/big wheel/officer]
is implied or abbreviated?

John Kambies -your Grandfather on the right appears to be of higher rank. [white gloves and belt]
The note seems to be referring to Karl Segar [on left] as Tier [ of lower rank?]

However, maybe Karl Segar wrote and signed the note - then what?

As I said above -I can't decipher the hand writing and am going on Greg's interpretation.
