    Thanks in advance!

    Good evening Rossi,

    I hope this will help a little.
    His first name is Wolfgang and to me the lastname looks like Ziehauer of Viehauer, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

    And this is the unit information I got. I have highlighted the SS units.

    31495
    (Mobilmachung-1.1.1940) 4. Zug Fla-MG-Reserve-Kompanie 203
    (2.1.1940-27.4.1940) gestrichen
    (28.4.1940-19.9.1940) 3. Kolonne Nachschub-Kolonne Abteilung 900
    (28.2.1941-29.7.1941) gestrichen

    (8.9.1942-11.3.1943) Stab, 1.-3. Batterie u. Kolonne
    Flak-Abteilung Begleit-Bataillon Reichsfuhrer SS
    (12.3.1943-7.9.1943) Stab, 1.-3. Batterie u. Kolonne 1.
    Flak-Abteilung SS-Kommando Stab
    dann Stab, 1.-3. Batterie u. Kolonne SS-Flak-Abteilung 1 Kommando
    Stab
    (23.4.1944-24.11.1944) 23.9.1944 Stab u. Einheit I Flak-Abteilung
    (RFSS)


    Great photo by the way.

    Regards, Rik

    I can't offer any data on the man, but here's what I can find on field post number 31495 (the "A" identified the sub-unit within the unit assigned the respective FPN):


    • mobilization to 1 Jan. 1940: 4. Zug Fla-MG-Reserve-Kompanie 203
    • 2 Jan. 1940 to 27 April 1940: unassigned
    • 28 April 1940 to 19 Sept. 1940: 3. Kolonne Nachschub-Kolonne Abteilung 900
    • 28 Feb 1941 to 29 July 1941: unassigned
    • 8 Sept. 1942 to 11 March 1943: Stab, 1.-3. Batterie u. Kolonne of Flak-Abteilung Begleit-Bataillon Reichsführer-SS
    • 12 March 1943 to 7 Sept. 1943: Stab, 1.-3. Batterie u. Kolonne of 1. Flak-Abteilung SS-Kommandostab, then: Stab, 1.-3. Batterie u. Kolonne of SS-Flak-Abteilung 1 Kommandostab
    • 23 April 1944 to 24.11.1944: Stab u. Einheit I Flak-Abteilung (RFSS)


    (source: Feldpost numbers )

    Edit/postscript: Rik beat me to the answer while I was still fiddling with my post. The name is Wolfgang Viehöver. For what it's worth, he is not listed in the online database of the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge [German War Graves Commission].
