Hello! Is that Administration officers diamond badge on left sleeve of Pohl`s uniform? (example on first picture on first page) Also, which sleeve diamond has oberfuhrer next to Oswald Pohl? Some badge could be seen partly on his lower left sleeve.

I think it is Franz Huber, Inspekteur der Sicherheitspolizei und des SD Wien and his rank is only SS-Standartenführer.

Definitely not Hoss. I think it is August Zehender.

I totally missed the date (1941). I know that Hoss was later in the Inspectorate and traveled from camp to camp, but these photos were from 1941 so impossible to be him. He was too busy at Auschwitz in 1941. Some of these guys begin to look so similar to one another!

Who is Sturmbannfuhrer with brown shirt on last photo, behind Huber? I think he is also visible on 3rd nad 5th photo on first page.
It is a little hard to recognize, but why he has allgemeine-ss style shoulder boards?

Thanks in advance

Yes, it's definitely Wilhelm Bittrich! In first photo we can see a small bandage on his left arm! And another photo of him with bandage!

SS-Staf in Allgemeine-SS uniform is Plakolm Polizeipräsident Linz.

Best wishes :D
Best regards

Georges
