    This is a member of the SS-Totenkopfverbände wearing the black service tunic.

    His right collar patch identifies his unit. I can't quite make out the cypher below the Death's Head, though; it looks either like an "S" or a "5". If it is an "S", it's the Sanitätsabteilung [Medical Detachment] of the SSTV; if it is a number "5", it's for the 5th company.

    Rank is shown on the left collar patch. He is a Scharführer, i.e. the higher of the two JNCO ranks.
