Rank Abbreviation

Post by Timdee » Sun Apr 10, 2016 12:15 pm

Not sure if this is the correct forum but I have a photo of a headstone showing the rank "OT. TRPFHR". I assume Truppenführer but what would OT mean?

Hello,
I think that OT stands for "Organisation Todt"
and TRPFHR stands for Truppführer (not truppenführer)
Kindly regards from Belgium
