    I can't figure out his name, either. It looks like Penic Zapper, but I doubt if that is it.

    It's a photo of Waffen SS RKT Paul Egger , he is saying schwere Panzer Abteilung , Konigstiger ,

    Heavy Panzer Abt , King Tiger.

    The photo shows him in the middle and to his left with the binos is Will Fey , the photo is of s.SS Panzer Abteilung 502,

    cheers

    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

    For some reason the rank on the photo is Oberleutnant instead of SS Obersturmfuhrer !!

    Why is the title of this thread, "Do they speak German?"

    It's " Do you speak German "

    No, it's not. You forgot to capitalize Sie. In lower case, it means "they."

    I stand corrected Nice to see we have someone here who understands the German grammer

    I suspect Odessa didn't realise that as well !!

    Do not forget "1st Lieutenant and platoon commander..."

    Knowledge of German gives the collector a real edge in this material, in fact.

    The handwriting here is not of the 1933-1945 era, but appears from the post war era.

    Good penmanship was also a sign of being an officer and a gentleman, as well as educated person.

    How times have changed, surely.
    damit, basta.
