The officer with the leather jacket seems very much lake Wittman.
But the turret number 011, (if see it correctly) doesn't match either with the Tiger company of the LSSAH or s.SS.Pz.Abt. 101. Totally confused... :? :? :?

Edit: The officer with the leather jacket ON THE LEFT, looks like Wittmann

I think it's 311. But did it belong to sSSPzAbt 103?

Let's not mix things!
If and when the number is 311, It is - considering the persons in the pic - Commander's tank/1st Troop/ 3.Coy./s.SS.Pz.Abt. 101. 8-)

According to the "Geschichte der Wehrmacht" page on facebook, the Tiger is said belong to SS-Untersturmführer Thomas Amselgruber...
