SS-Hstuf. LAH, former U-Boot man

Postby Peter » 13 Sep 2017 16:41

I apologise if this has already been asked, please can anybody ID this officer, he appears to be a SS-Hstuf. with the LAH and he is wearing a 1914-18 U-boot sailors badge I think ?

He is a technician officer, according his sleeve diamond ( A Cogwheel, not visible on this picture ).

Maybe future SS-Stubaf. Max Linbrunner ?

Thanks von Thoma and J Keenan

It would be excellent if it is Linbrunner, I have searched for a good wartime photo of him without much success. thank you. Peter

I have doubts, whether this is Linbrunner. In the same photoshoot PK Lumme shot a picture (frame 19) of a SS-Rottenführer wearing the so called Easternfrontmedal.
This medal was not handed out before June 1942. At that time Linbrunner already had been promoted to SS-Stubaf. (April 20, 1942)
To confirm or put an end to these doubts, maybe someone in the possession of SSO-roll 262A is able to check whether L.'s file mentions an Uboot-sailors badge.
Best,
Bogo
