His eyeglasses look too modern... Almost looks like my grade school principal that used corporal punishment.. ( Big board whacks on the arse ) G
Is he an old soldier, getting his portrait done post war?
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
This is a portrait of General Hans Von Donat taken after 1957. He is wearing a 1957 ribbon bar on his tunic. It was discussed several years ago here in this thread:
1957 german award owners
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Very unusual. Of course, putting on the old uniform for a private portrait photograph (as opposed to wearing it in public) would not have been in violation of the law.
A general and no RK ?
