Josef Bremm,

I have deleted your post "Tolsdorff". In fact the man is Karl Frewer !
This is 100% secure. Discussed a number of times. The internet is still full of wrong captioned pics !
See here for example -> http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=23209
The database is open again for Tolsdorff and / or Frewer.
