Here's a prewar photo of a Bavarian major from IR 21 but the dedication on the back is not very legible.

If the signature on the back were to be deciphered, maybe a face could be added to an existing bio here in the forum that might lack a photo.

The signature on the back reads "Oberstleutnant G...stein". Sorry, I also can't decipher the first half of the name.

Thank you very much, Christian! I believe you are correct about "Oberstleutnant" and the letters "G..... stein".

I looked at the names of officers from all 3 Bavarian infantry regiments and the Bavarian Reiter regiment in the 1932 Reichswehr ranklist. The only name ending in "stein" is von Reitzenstein, but he was already an Oberst in 1932. Also, Lexikon der Wehrmacht has the names of IR 21's commanders but there were no commanders' names ending in "stein" from 1934 to 1945.

I'll look at the entire list of the Reichwehr's officer-corps when I get a chance and maybe I'll come up with a name. In the meantime, if anybody has any other leads on IR 21's officers, please chime-in.

By the way, it's not Wolfram von Richthofen. This officer doesn't have the Pour le Merite and the EK1 like him.

The man appears to be a Luftwaffe technical official with the rank "Hauptstabsingenieur" (equivalent to an Oberst). The rank insignia show triangles instead of "birds". I would think that he is presenting the model of a new barracks project in former Austria - maybe Flak-Kaserne Küniglberg in Vienna. The pic must have been taken before 25.03.1939 (date of promotion Löhr's to General der Flieger), most likley on 14.05.1938 when Göring was present at the groundbreaking.

Here you can find a pic showing the rank insignia of an "Oberstabsingenieur" (=Oberstleutnant): https://www.philipp-militaria.com/archi ... 67734.html
