Was it common at that time for cars to be right hand drive?

That car looks like Austrian Steyr, so yes, there was driving on the left in Austria at that time (as well as in Spain, Sweden, Italy, Hungary, Czechoslovakia).
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Czechoslovakia was changed after the German arrival...

Getting back to Haug

Reasons why there is no German Wikipedia entry for him.

Well, he seems to be the same person, they just dropped Ernst.

You're right; I wonder what my link was all about.

Is Haug the figure on the left in uniform?
