    It says...:

    "Unser Div. Komm. [= Divisionskommandeur]
    Generalleutn. [= Generalleutnant]
    Auleb"

    ...meaning:

    "Our Divisional Commander
    Generalleutnant
    Auleb
    "

    Please see:
    Helge Auleb - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    General der Infanterie Helge Auleb (German language)

    HPL......you are the man! As always, your knowledge is much appreciated. Thanks for the link too, it is everything I need to know for now. I'm guessing it would put the photo before 1941 since he is not wearing his DKIG.

    p.s.- keep an eye out for a new thread I am going to start....I might need some help on some stahlhelmbund/sa/nskk photos. I know youre good at pointing out the details that I frequnetly overlook. haha thanks again

    I wonder why General Auleb wasnt awarded the Krim Shield? He was commander of 6th Infantry Division in Crimea. He was also commander of 49th Gebrigs Armee-korps too. Although he was awarded the DKIG, Im also suprised he wasnt awarded the Knights Cross.

    Well, You know what.....I think you might have solved this one for me!!!! I have a good feeling about this one. Thank you VERY much for the help and time. I really think it has a chance. I just need to do a little reseach to see if it matches up, but again, I think you nailed it! Like I stated earlier, the black dot on the photo scan is not a mustache, just a blemish in the scan/photo. He seems to be around the similar age too. I believe my photo must have been pre-knights cross tho unfortunately haha

    ya, i would say thats definitely him......do you agree? Wikipedia doesnt list that he recieved the EK Spange, but it doesnt mean much. ha. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FRANZ! I have looked at alot of GJ Generals and wasnt able to get a match yet, so I am very grateful.

    It could make sense, since 2nd GJ division was in Norway like the photo is labaled
