An older Zahlmeister/Sekretar wearing a full uniform. From the date of the photo, and his age, I wonder if he was one of the civilians who were incorporated into the Wehrmacht in 1934?

The reverse:

Another beamte officer. I don't think he has a white nebenfarbe though. A little damage on the one side.

A Beamte a. K. of a Medium/Elevated career, with the Winterschlacht im Osten ribbon. He's wearing the hat with capband and collar for a Sonderführers uniform.

The reverse:

Meinem alten
Kameraden und
[unreadable, perhaps something like: immer wegenen] Fahrer
R. [unreable family name, something like: Regeron] zur Erinnerung
an gemein verlebte Kriegs-
tage
Heinz K[?]rak
Ozm.

Ozm. = Oberzeugmeister

For my old
comrade and
[unknown adjectives] driver
R. [family name] as a reminder
of war days spent together.
Heinz Krak

Any help with the translation would be appreciated

Hi Todd

Thanks for those. I like the Beamte a. K. with the High career, don't see to many of those.

Landwirtschaftsführer Kurt Leffler winner of the RK das KvK mit Schwerten

Born 6 June 1907 in Mühlberg bei Arnstadt. Sonderführer (Z), with Armeegruppe Mitte since 1941. Basically, he served to seize, secure, and protect Russian farm crops so they could be used by the Wehrmacht. During the course of such duty "often in the front line with a machine gun" according to Göring's speech ( ) he and his fellow Crop Commissars were frequently engaged in anti-partisan action, once broke out of Soviet encirclement, and wiped out "a large Soviet officer staff" near Juchnow. His confiscations included making snow shirts available to the troops (bed sheets?) as well as turning over commandeered crops as food.

Bestowal was on 4 October 1942-- among the earliest presentations.

The reverse

Landwirtschaftsführer Kurt Leffler, to whom the Führer awarded the Knights Cross of the War Merit Cross, was presented his award by Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring on the occasion of the Grand Rally of the NSDAP on Harvest Festival Day on Sunday morning in the Berlin Sports Palace.

Like most RK of the KVK, Lefler's was awarded ina group ceremony in Berlin

A Post "Z" Zugfuhrer

To quote Rick Reaserch of GMIC:

"An Austrian. 2nd through 5th ribbons are a grand slam of either all four classes (Gold, Large Silver, Small Silver, Bronze) of their WW1 bravery medals or multiples of those with a Merit Cross on war ribbon-- but I think from lack of swords he's got Everything There Was To Get for bravery medals."

Going by the fact that there were few careers where a Leutnant whould have a High career and that the nebenfarbe could be green i think this would be a "Feldapothekier"
