    Maybe Robin Lumsden will offer an opinion on the kind of Totenkopf on this interesting cap. I do not know the date of the image, but one could figure it out from his date of rank.

    Dear Robert, he does seem to have a metal Sternchen on his collar patch. I was also interested in what pattern of Danziger Totenkopf rested on his cap. Robin Lumsden has an eagle eye for this kind of thing. I believe many of the UK people are at their militaria Woodstock.

    In any case, I have many nice electronic images of uniforms, and these are an important part of our body of evidence.

    Thanks for your intervention.

    This is the pattern Danziger totenkopf worn on the hat, in question.

    Dear Friend, that had been my WAG, but I defer to you and Maestro Lumsden in these very refined matters.

    Forster (without the 'e') was promoted to this rank in January 1934. I consulted the 1935 DAL.
