second chap on the right looks like Heydrich
The man is not an officer as he is wearing the standard other ranks kepi. He is a look alike but it is not Heydrich.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
When did Heydrich become an officer in the SS? I know he was latter promoted to Major by Himmler but when he was first hired what was his rank?
Thanks Bob. Any idea on the SS pennant?
Later that year came additional rapid promotions to Sturmhauptführer on 1st December and Sturmbannführer on 25th December.
His final rank at the time of his death in 1942 was SS-Obergruppenführer und General der Polizei.
The rank of Major did not exist in the SS; but Heydrich did hold that rank as a reserve officer in the Luftwaffe.
From his service in the Reichsmarine, he was also listed as an Oberleutnant zur See a.D.
