Any one for some ID and informations about this officer? The caption in the archive is "Oberstleutnant Wolfgang Förster", could be a german officer serving in Denmark. But is it him, but here as a generals rank? Source: Danish National Archive digital Collection. Regards, Kurt - kstdk

My "probably" was not meant for "Min.Dir." (to me "Min.Dir." or "Min.Dirig." is the same for Ministerialdirigent, although I agree that "Min.Dirig." is more understandable) but for Wolfg. Foerster ( 'cause I was not sure that it was him).

Okay. But the official abbreviations (even today) are:

Ministerialdirektor: MD, MDir, MinDir
Ministerialdirigent: MDg, MDirig, MinDirig

This still is taken from a clip showing the surrender of German troops near the Czech border in May 1945 (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2l4MeOv09K8). Any idea who he might be?
