    Default Help with an abbreviation

    I'm sure this is not the right sub-forum but I need help with an abbreviation.

    If this belongs somewhere else please let me know and I will repost....

    But I really need some help.

    I recently purchased a unique M40 (more about that in another post) that is named on the leather liner.

    The name is very faint and it is very difficult to photograph, but the best I can make out is this....

    "San. Utfz. Holgar Gern(?)". Not worried about the last name.

    But for the life of me I don't know what "San." would stands for.

    Any ideas. PLEASE

    Michael

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    San typically has a medical connotation.

    As said above, medical: "San.Uffz." = "Sanitätsunteroffizier", the designation for the lowest NCO rank in the medical career.
