Unknown Hauptmann from http://www.militaria321.com/browse/168_ ... raeger.cfm

His face is very familiar to me, but I can't give the name.

John and Someone from Kharkov,

after waiting a few days for further comments and having some time for thinking I hope that I found a handling for the previous two ids below 100%. Can't say just No and don't want to and therefore I have set both on the Confirmations section. With a bit more in-depth text representing the state per now.
Ulrich Freiherr von Canstein
see summary of this case / questions on page 242
for comparisn : von Canstein drawing

Karl Nicolussi-Leck or Willi Hein ?
latest discussion : The man on the pic in question is wearing a HJ badge. None of the three Hein pics we have already shows that badge. ?? . Also, doesn't the (sloppy) cap style speak for Nicolussi-Leck ? - I agree that Nicolussi-Leck/Hein case is still debatable
Best regards
Bernd

That picture has always been identified as Nicolussi-Leck as far as I'm concerned. I'd herefor say it is him.
