Here's one privatfoto I recently acquired. His name appears to be Major Dietrich Bruns, but I can't find any info on that.
Could someone support me with a confirmation of his name and some more info please ?
Thanks!
Diedrich Bruns / AHF id
see detailed Bio with a number of pics on the excellent 22. ID website http://www.historic.de/Militar/Personen/Bruns/Bruns.htm
of note : christian name indeed spelled Diedrich, see German Cross in Gold document for example.

I am struck by the resemblance between the Dietrich Bruns photo and this photo of Axel Bruns on the ritterkreuztrager.de website.

WHO IS THIS RITTERKREUZTRAGER

Post by Jeremy Dixon » 22 Mar 2005 22:55

SS-Sturmbannfuhrer with Knights Cross, German Cross and tank destroy badges - but who is it?

Two RKT one I think is Baum?

1st Photo- Kurt Franke at right. Can't ID the man at left now, but will try later unless someone beats me to it.

In 2nd photo: Vinzenz "Zenz" Kaiser.

Otto Baum does not appear in either photo.

The second is Karl Ulrich. The photo was taken March 1944 near Balta in Romania.

Hello John, thanks for bringing that up.
That's a little too much of coincidence for me. Maybe they were family, or are we (or the ritterkreuztrager.de guys) mixing up the names ?

This W-SS NCO appears on an e-bay site. Can anyone say who it is?

Hello John and Daniel,

it is not Gerhard Fischer ! He looks a little bit like him, but it is not he. Look also at the rank. On the picture is a Hauptscharführer, but Gerhard Fischer´s last rank was Oberscharführer.
Sorry, at the moment I do not know who could it be.

Hello,

it´s me again. I for myself think it is Paul Trabandt of 2./SS-PzJägAbt 5 " Wiking".
