Hello, Bogo

Did you happen to come across Zeitler's confirmed wartime images? All I've seen so far are a couple of his images from the 1930s.

Cheers,
Ivan

Here is one from his SSO as SS-St.Ojunk (I guess) so probably early 1934.

Here's a better copy. A bit tough for a comparison with the 1944 photo. Not that there isn't a resemblance.

I think there is a strong resemblance in eyes, front of face, neck, only snag is the ears.

This could be a trick of the angle of light on photo 1 vs 2,

The line of the inner ear on photo 1 doesn't seem to match the way you would expect it to in photo 2.

Dear colleagues, in my humble opinion, these are the same person.
Thanks for this photo.

Andrey.

I tend to agree, but since his face had apparently changed quite a bit in those 10 years (which is perfectly normal, especially for someone with tendency to gain weight), plus he had his hair cut atypically short for that era, it would be good if Bogo had a confirmed wartime photo of him, just to make sure.

Note to Georg: besides the Iron Cross, Infantry Assault Badge and Golden Party Badge, he also wears a Hitler Youth Badge.

Cheers,
Ivan

The SS-Ostuf. in post #3536 is SS-Ostuf. (later SS-Hstuf.) Hans Carl Fechner, Kommandeur, SS-Ersatzkommando Dänemark.
Identified on Danish FB group "Besættelsen 1940-1945" some years ago.

Cheers,

The SS-Stubaf. at Copenhagen 1944 during ceremony when Egon Christophersen got his RK should be Hermenegild Graf von Westphalen (Kdr. SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment 24 “Danmark”/11. SS Freiwilligen-Panzergrenadier-Division “Nordland”), he himself as SS-Obersturmbannführer awarded the German Cross in Gold on 23 April 1944.
