Hello, Olympiaryan

It's all the same person. The prewar photos (Leignitz, May 1935) show him as a 2nd lieutenant and the unit number on his shoulder boards appears to be "3" (the piping is dark-coloured, which can indicate several different branches). The wartime photo show him as a major (no unit number).

Cheers,
Ivan
