The Allgem. SS man may be one of the SSTV men.

If you examine the thread on the ding bat site, this man went into the Waffen SS and then into the Austrian Bundesgendarmerie and or Bundesheer, which is an amusing touch.
The savants on the other site cannot decipher such data, but it is plainly there.
At least the man survived the war, which so many others of his kind did not. I do not imagine that all his uniforms survived 1945, either, truth be told.

Here is a further Bundesheer image, which include the T-34s with the Austrian emblem and the Austrian troops in US uniforms left behind when the US Army withdrew from Austria in 1955.
Thank you F-B for this photo interpretation I have seen this group elsewhere and failed to notice the post war images.
