Looks like my post disappeared due to the migration. It looks to me that it is Noack.

Well - it seems that my answer dissapeared as well :)

I do not think it is Noack. Letter 2 and 3 appears to be an "o" as in Major. Unfortunately we have no comparison for the first and last letters. It seems a rather uncommon German name. One would need the Rangliste from Inf.Rgt. 66 1935/36. I have only this small version:

Although a in Noack does not look like a in Major, it looks similar to a in Magdeburg or in Frühjahr.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

There are only two OTL Noacks in the 1938 Rangliste - one infantry and one artillery. The infantry Noack served in InfRgt.1 and he was in that unit already in 1935 when our guy was serving in inf.Rgt.66.
The first letter is either a "R" or "N". Ant the last two indeed appears to be "ck".
