Looks like Siebken in the middle. I'm not sure about Springer because he should have RK due to Witt's rank and Oak Leaves. But probably RK is there, can't understand due to poor quality.

Hello

I wonder if anyone can help me, in this photo we have Albrecht Krügel, Fritz von Scholz and a unknown SS-Ostubaf. with a cufftitle "Theodor Eicke", but the series of photos are solely from Nordland.
Can anyone Id him?
My first thought was Collani but he was never at "Theodor Eicke" to my knowledge, but I can be wrong.

Best regards
Georg

Hello, Peter

It's a Russian reenactor, photographed a decade ago.

From https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File ... %D0%A1.jpg
Obersturmführer of the 20th SS Grenadier Division (1st Estonian) (reconstruction). The photo was taken in Gatchina, 2 May 2013, at the Festival of retro technology and military history lovers. In the photo - Vladimir Dolgov, Gatchina Military History Club. The image was aged using Photoshop.
And there was no "Estland" cuff-title (there was just a case of a trooper converting a "Westland" cuff-title into "Estland"; see this image).

Cheers,
Ivan
