Not a Gebirgsjäger, but a Jäger, in the 97. Jäger-Division, the Spielhahn-Division or Spielhahnfeder.
So short of actually naming him, look closely at what is hanging around his neck. There were 5 given to soldiers in this division. 47th Volksgrenadier Division is also a clue here.
Amongst the five ELs in 97. Jäger-Division there is ONE who got his EL nine days after your candidate.... Hence you are nine days off, or 4 ELs if wou wish.
This man also survived the war, with the rank of colonel and division commander of a before mentioned division.
