Help with names

Post by LuckyStrike23 » 24 Dec 2020 10:02

Can anyone help with the names below? I cannot read any of them. Pics were made in 1941, none of the guys is in a "Rangliste".

Thanks.

I agree with Scholl and Osebold. Both names belong to NCOs, I cannot check it unfortunately.

It looks indeed like Schnuß, but such a name does not exist nowadys in Germany. No hit at google or the telephone book. Something must be wrong with it.
The same with Erentsen.

Hi LuckyStricke and Greg,

IMG 2 the first name I read as Maier or Meier.
It was corrected, but I go for an a: Maier.

Best regards

Thanks. I have him a second time. I actually know all the letters of the Kurrentschrift, but this guy has a terrrible handwriting and not one single name is easy readable.

It's Schnaß, not Schnuß.

That one after Maier looks like ...ange

Could be Starg after Scholl.

Last one looks like G..thardt, perhaps Guthardt or Gethardt

Thanks. Yes, indeed - Schnaaß exists nowadays. Here is the photo - maybe it helps. It was taken in April 1941. I believe, they belong to PzErs.Abt.11. The man in the middle is certainly a reservist - the others maybe as well.

I found the following man in the Freiburg archiv. Could be that Schnaaß is not the man to the right, but in the middle:
