    Probably wrong but it does look a lot like H Himmler therefore most likely a rubber stamp.I think that April 11-45 was about the same time Himmler was trying to strike a deal with the Swedish government for peace .

    It's the signature of the Gaustabfuhrer for Gau 9 Hamburg whoever he was !! Definatley not the signature of Himmler plus he was way above the rank of Gaustabfuhrer !!
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    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

    The Gaustabsführer for Gau 9 Hamburg was NSKK-Obergruppenführer Proehl, but actually, it's not the signature of the Gaustabsführer himself:
    Please note that the signature is preceded by "i.A." [= im Auftrag]; this means it was signed by somebody acting on behalf of the Gaustabsführer.

    Absolutely right.

    Yes, even if he was representing someone, his rank was Brigadfuhere, that should be high.

    This was given to him too roughly about the same time...
