u!nknown photo

Post by sebastian » Tue Oct 18, 2011 5:50 am

Can someone help me out?I had this picture,its like printed on cardboard,can someone tell me more about it?I cant read the signature,only the 1944,the name itself is not so clear to me,on the back there is a name dopke with dots on the o;so it must be deupke when you say it.
I can see the ek2klasse ribbon,the ek1 and the allgemeine sturmabzeichen in silver?
Not sure about the rank,he is wearing his waffen,rock im thinking?

Thx in advance

Sebastian

Sebastian I don't think it's Rishts. I'm not sure if that is even a german name. Maybe somebody with access to a german telephone book could confirm it for you. There is nobody by that name listed in the Volksbund directory although that in itself doesn't mean that it is not a proper name.

@ prosper,you could be right,if i type my name in sutterlin it looks like a cufftitle,and a cool one too :-),i am not 100% sure about the name,there are some ppl on this forum who could read it maybe,and even so it could be the name of the man who took the foto or the studioowner...

thx for the opinions guys!
