These two images should "place" him both geographically and organizational
It is not him in the picture ...

Come on, take a guess!

Start somewhere........

He is not a Gebirgsjäger.
There was five "of him" in his division.
Wich is what "organizational placement" refers to.

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. :wink:

I am really sorry, but I simply cannot understand your phrase.
I assume, that I'm correct?

Sorry, but you are not correct :?

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. :wink:

This man also survived the war, with the rank of colonel and division commander of a before mentioned division.

His name is Oberst Karl Langesee
