    I have having trouble reading the handwriting, sorry Steve!

    I can at least make out that the second line is 'Generalleutnant'.

    Last 2 words are die Heeres (the army)
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    This is General Helge Hansen, who was the chief of staff of the German Army at the time. That is, Generalleutnant und Inspekteur des Heeres. He is very tall, to boot. That is, chief of staff of the land forces of the Bundeswehr versus the CHOD, i.e. the Generalinspekteur d. Bw.
    damit, basta.

    I believe it is General Helge Hansen. He was Inspector of the Army and from 1994 to 1996 he was Commander Allied Forces Central Europe within NATO. Helge Hansen (general) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Inspector of the Army is the literal translation, which in the U.S. would be Chief of Staff, and I will leave it to my UK friends to translate.
    General Inspector for General Inspekteur also is a literal translation that does not work.

    No harm intended, but this sort of thing has been a part of my life for decades, as it were.

    All things being equal, I can well imagine a life along the Mosel versus where I live now, actually.
