It's the time of Ingo's pics obviously. Stumbled upon a second one which was identified previously by Terry.
Ernst Gürke

By chance I found a reference photo (Hoffmann card) [source: militaria321.com].
Viewing this Hoffmann pic I had doubts first. But the more I look, the eye-browes, the nose..
So, hopefully this is useful to rule out doubts and to have a 100% confirmation. And a nice pic ! :)

Best regards
Bernd

Thanks Harmel,

Is it Navy officer in the second pic.? (Buttons?)

According to the source, there might be a connection with Kriegsmarine "Kleinkampfverbände".

all the best,

Ralf

Hello, Ralf,

To answer your question concerning the depicted officer with the fur collar, he does belong to a naval unit. Not sure yet.
If you compare the hat device with that of Helmut Heye's, you can see the similiarities.

Hope this helps.

Terry
