Hi,

The signature reads Sorge.

It should be Helmut (Helmut-Günther?) Sorge.

Best regards

Wow! That was quick!. Thanks guys. I've been puzzling over that for a long time. I think Armin's suggestion is correct. I have a Hozzel signature and it is quite a bit different. Has anyone got any biographical information on him please?
Thanks
Ian

Hi,

According this he took over SG 2 on 16 October 1941:

So obviously Sorge was already in command of I./SG1 in September 1941.
