Awesome photo but I suspect that is Wessel's sister and brother (not Erna). Wessel's sister wrote a book about her brother Horst and the younger brother also joined the SA.
Wessel looks much younger in this photo than when he was in the SA. I think he is a teenager here posing for a family portrait.

That girl was older than Horst?

The title of the book written by Ingeborg is "Mein Bruder Horst"

Werner was the one who also joined the SA. I'm not certain Helge- it's hard to tell really if that young woman is older or younger...all 3 of them look very young in that particular photo. Horst definitely looks younger than the time he was a storm troop leader. Pre-SA I'd say.

Werner Wessel was killed in a snow storm in the mountains (22 December 1929) two months before his brother Horst.

In this photograph Horst is 17 years old.

Duncan thanks for the correction. I confused the year of photography with the age of Horst.
