    Portrait Gebirgsjäger

    Came across this portrait photo of a Gebirgsjäger ( Unteroffizier ? ), picked it up at a local antique shop at the swiss-austrian border.

    Had to share this one..

    P.s. If someone could identify the text on the backside it would be highly appreciated!

        That would be my guess also, does look like August. Maybe his last name is first? Or maybe August is referring to the month rather than the name. Saying it was taken in August 1941

          since it is written: Uffz. ... August

          My guess would be that it is written in the correct military term.

          Rank, Last name, First name

          'August' is an old but common first name in the southern germanic regions!

          ..just a theory
