Request for Identification: NSDAP, SA, NSKK, NSFK, RAD, HJ, usw.

Post by Michael Miller » 14 Aug 2020 16:26

We have a thread like this for the SS and Polizei, so now we have one for the NSDAP and other leading Party affiliates.

In this first post, can anyone identify the SA-Oberführer with Wolf-Heinrich Graf von Helldorff?

With many thanks in advance,
~ Mike

My suggestion is Walther Freiherr von Lindenfels, later SA-Brigadeführer.

There is some resemblance, but Freiherr von Lindenfels was not promoted SA-Oberführer until 09.11.1934 and this image is from the Vossische Zeitung, issue of 6. November 1932.

Thank you, Andrey.

The only other man named Walter Schmidt who held high SA rank is SA-Gruppenführer born in 1903... at least as far as I know. This is, of course, a different one, and SA-Oberf. must be his highest rank. I know there was a Major a. D. of that name associated with Graf Helldorff prior to the Machtergreifung. Do you have more information on him?

Best wishes,
~ Mike

Hello Mike,
Sorry for the delay with answer - little summer vacation...
Of course this is a different "Schmidt", I have seen the same photo with the caption for a long time. I only remember that the photo location was Potsdam.
Best,

Andrey.

Might this be von Helldorff with Walter Schmidt again? September 1932.

Best wishes and thanks in advance,

Looks like Wilhelm Weiss, though not all sure because of the angle.
