Left from Das-Ritterkreuz.de, right from Scherzer.

I think it was Gerhard Bruckmann.

Einspruch Euer Ehren !! Application was left opposed, Your Honourable :D
Bruchmann was "only" Feldwebel der Reserve, but our unknown man is obviously Oberfeldwebel :(

Modern technology still can beat this!

I used Access to sort all Oberfeldwebel's and Feldwebel's and Unteroffizier's with name Gerhard. Either I know what they looked like or they didn't fit the bit. Except there was no picture of ObFwb Gerhard Scholz Fhr 7/GrRgt 317.

What about Gerhard Horn?

His name is Gerhard, I'm 99% at least if you compare the letters in his writing with his signature...

best,

Yes, it is Horn. I was searching under G, because I didn't think that a personal greeting message for a birthday would have been signed with the surname first.
