    And the freebies, one image is very interesting which I would love some more info on. Some of the men appear to be either SS or SD.

    Thank you, Glen.

    The top soldier (Becker) was captured by the Russians at Pillau (East Prussia) on 27 April 1945 and spent 14 months in a POW camp 10 Kilometers south of Kursk, being released on 27 June 1946...
    Considered a Juvenile by the denazification committee, he was declared free of any charges...

    Hi Glenn, it states on the documentation that Becker was born in 1916? Would the comment about him being a 'juvenile' be a clerical error?

    Well, he would have been 17 and a juvenile in 1933...it says "due to paragraph 14 he is legally a juvenile"...I don't think there are any errors as far as the document goes... Interesting stuff, thanks!
    cheers, Glenn

    Thanks Glenn for the clarification. Presumably by being below 21 years in 1933 he was deemed to have played no part (ie by voting) in the Nazis rise to power. I guess that I'd have to go further into denazification process to understand properly how it worked.

    It would be interesting to have some opinions about the other photos in the 3rd post. Given the uniforms and that the men are on the older side, I wondered if they could be Sicherheitspolizei (Sipo - Security Police). I understand that they wore the same uniform as the SD. Sipo were of course much involved in the Einsatzgruppen used in mass killings in the East. Perhaps the second photo is related - it may suggest some kind on security action in process.

    I have to add that Becker was stationed on an Armoured Train (Eisenbahnzug 6) before being wounded...According to the document from the Deutsche Dienststelle dated 1954...
