Posted a picture of what I am asking about. Can’t find anything on the internet that explains the acronym.

Hello,
Leutnant d.R. a.D. = Leutnant die Reserve Ausser Dienst (Leutnant of the reserve, out of service) :-)
Regards

Hi,
I see I´m too late as Kurt (again!) did solve the question, one remark though: It´s "Leutnant der Reserve, außer Dienst".

Cheers
