    Hi everyone,
    Im sorry to impose, cant seem to get any help on my posts.
    I was wondering if it would be possible someone to have a look at this SS id card of Hanns Blaschke, from what ive gathered in net research he ended the war as mayor of vienna with the rank of SS-Brigadeführer although at the date of the id hes stated as sturmbannfuhrer.Normally Himmler would sign all ss id cards but as its austrian i cant find out who signed it?
    Any ideas?
    Does it seem to you to be legit/original?
    Any help would be extremly apreciated.

    Best regards

    Joao

    Hi Joao, I think the document is a fine original item.

    Sorry I cannot read the signature of the officer who counter signed it. Some futher research into SS Oberabschnitt Österreich is required to id him.

    The card has been updated, as seen by the stamps and the photo, but his rank was for some unknown reason not updated. But as you can see in the photo he wears the rank of SS Standartenfuhrer so it never got fully updated to his final rank.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Blaschke was promoted three times in very quick succession following the 1938 Anschluss.

    The SS-Dienstalterslisten list his promotion dates as:

    - Untersturmführer: ---
    - Obersturmführer: ---
    - Hauptsturmführer: ---
    - Sturmbannführer: 12 March 1938*
    - Obersturmbannführer: 20 April 1938
    - Standartenführer: 25 July 1938
    - Oberführer: 20 April 1941
    - Brigadeführer: 20 April 1944


    *) The date of the German entry into Austria; apparently the rank was bestowed retroactively.

    This is Hanns Blaschke smoking at the table with other high ranking SS members, the pic must of been taken between 1944-1945 because his rank has been updated as seen by the insignia, i think next to him sits a infantry general not sure..Attachment 288053Attachment 288054
