Unknown Leutnant.

Post by D_Dutch » Wed Apr 30, 2008 3:08 am

Hello,

I hope that you guys can help me with this.
Maybe it's impossible to find it out, but does someone know who the Leutnant with the eye-patch is?
He is at the Ritterkeuz ceremony of Werner Baumbach, 8th of May, 1940. :wink:

I don't know, but its interesting. It seems like he didn't receive the wound in his service because I can't spot a wound badge. Hard to tell w/ the Tuchrock though...

I believe, though very blurred, that the badge the Lt. is wearing is a wound badge.

@Rudi,

Looks more like a Beobachterabzeichen to me.

Eyepatch with no wound badge?

It could well be a temporary ailment in the eye, requiring no light hitting the eye? Maybe a splinter or metal shaving in the eye?
