    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I think he is mate , this photo was probably taken around March 1944 when the combat in the Narva Bridgehead was very heavy.

    Most of the men in this photo probably didn't make it out of Narva as SS Panzer Gren Rgt 48 "General Seyffardt " was completely destroyed in the forests near Repniku during the retreat to the Tannenberg line in late July 1944.
