Are you sure it's (98bf204c-7dec-45ee-85d4-1d4f94c299d2) Jobst-Hilmar von Bose? I very much doubt that in March 1945 he was sitting relaxed and drinking beer, basking in the sun, which was covered with smoke of fires! I believe it could be Kurt Christofzik, and once someone made a mistake and these two people began to replace one with the other! Sorry for the doubts!
Hi Ingward,
from where the knowledge that the pic. was taken march '45?
Besides that, you well know that one of the reference points are the ears, you can see them as fingerprints. Mistakes can happen, it's human, but in this case I'm pretty sure about the ID and that it surely can't be Christofzik, although I don't have so many good quality photo's for a clear comparison. Here are some examples for you to compare yourself.

Jobst-Hilmar von Bose was awarded the DKiG on March 22,1945.Yeah, it's not the right time to relax and have a beer! Especially on the Eastern Front! Well, let's assume that you are right. Although, if we compare the photo (von Bose Jobst-Hilmar) 06b with the photo (Christowzik Kurt) 02b, it is clearly visible that the left ear is the same in both photos.

Hi Hugo and Ingward,

They were both wrong. Erich Glaeser is shown in the photo.

Ref von Bose! Scheibert has him as DkiG as was posted, but Ritterkreuz Teil 111
Infanterie Bi -Bo by Biblio has him as a recipient on the 27/7/44 which he won on
the Western Front hence maybe the beer!!! but at the time of this award was already
an Oberst but photo shows an Obstlt.I know a lot of officers did not always wear there medals for certain reasons
but he did have the Spange to IC 1st Class and also 2nd Class-WB in black-Winter Medal-and Inf Ass Badge(Silver) all
won before award 0f DKiG. Harmel

Gents,
this is a portrait of Jobst-Hilmar Graf v. Bose labeled on the reverse side by his widow in the mid 50ies.
Cheers
