Tolga, could the person to the left be Karl Ullrich? Also, very interesting to see the camouflage hood being worn like that, I've never seen that before.

Best regards/ Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Yes it is possible to be Ulrich,SS RKT with camouflage uniform is also very close to me but I can't recognize him.

Best Regards

Hello Tolga,

it is Kurt Franke and Karl Ulrich. The photo was taken in March 1944 near Balta in Romania.

Hi Denis,

I had suggested the officer between Sandner and Ehiger was Ferdinand Anton Hodurek on PP40. I still think that is the case.

BTW, who were these lucky fellows?

Hello Freiherr
Wedding 1 is Franz Josef Högl
The other doesn't turn the light on in my mind, sorry

Here is a big pic of Lautz.
