There are many examples when the awardees were awarded a higher rank with seniority from the back number. This is exactly the case. The photo shows Stefan Fröhlich when he served in North Africa. Sincerely yours!
Hi Ingward,
yes it can happen at a higher rank, but not at a lower.
To my opinion in this case it is not Fröhlich, but Obst. Theodor Beckmann in the picture. What do you think?
Regards,
Hugo.

Hello comrade! To a certain extent, I share your opinion, but I primarily look not at titles and uniforms, but at faces! For example, there is a photo of Harry Hopper, in which he is depicted with the Luftwaffe eagle, although he served in the ground forces. As for Ludwig Beckmann, he received the Knight's Cross in March 1943, when the German-Italian group in North Africa was already in agony and there was no time for photographing. And besides, Beckmann received the German Cross in gold in 1942, but the man depicted in the photo does not have it. So we leave the question of his identification open! Sincerely yours!

Hi Ingward,

He's not Siegfried Schmoll.
Honors do not match: He should wear DKiG, but not the Crimean shield.
The ribbon bars do not match.

Regards,
George
