Names?

Post by luckystrike78 » 23 Feb 2018 16:38

Can anyone read these two names? It seems to be panzer officers before 1939.

Hi Luckystricke

As there is no answer yet, I give you my proposal for the first name:

I don't read a "Lü", for me it's "Lösge" for the first name.

Best regards

As these are officers, perhaps it's not a bad idea to search promotion lists. I've seen them on line somewhere, most likely on some other forum (in German). Guys in Biographical Research section of this Forum might have them anyway.

Any guess is good with surnames! Could also be Leutn. Lösche
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Thanks for your replys. Here are these two guys. The left is wearing a diagonal belt and the right one a black side cap. So I suppose it was taken around 1939. I have not seen these two faces before. In the Rangliste (Oct. 1938) there is no Leutnant Lö.... in any of the panzer units. But of course it could be that he was promoted after october 1938 or they both served in another branch (Panzeraufklärer, Panzernachrichten).

Hi Luckystrike

Thanks for your reply and the photo.

What does the Rangliste say about the second name, I read: Oberl. Radhüt.
Your opinion Greg?

No - no one with that or a similar name.

I read: Oberl. Radhüt.
It could well be, Armin. Although it does not come up in surname searches, so either is rare or we are still not there yet... :?
