Thanks Nick and Bill! No, Erwin that photograph is a loose photograph. Hereby in attachment. You see that the Pea Dot Wrappers are worn, Italian Camo overall.. The Officer with the leather jacket is SS-Sturmbannführer Karl-Heinz Prinz whom was killed in action on the 14th of August 1944. Earned the Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes.

Unknown SS-Obersturmführer of the SS-Panzer-Regiment 12. Should anyone have an idea? Also camo smocks are worn over their Panzer uniforms.

NCO's from SS-Panzer-Regiment LSSAH which I presume are probably for the set up of SS-Panzer-Regiment 12 HJ. Don't know more.

Gordon, sorry I did not responded earlier to your magnificent replies and scans to my thread. Do you have these in possession?

 

I managed to get a new photograph from the 12. SS-Panzer-Division "Hitlerjugend". I've heard from where I bought it that the young soldiers shown on the photograph belong to the SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment 26 and that the photograph is taken in Belgium. As I don't have references to confirm this, I can only "believe" for now what is told. From another source and good friend, I know that this particular photo - not the photograph itself as it is another type but it is the same image - belonged with other images with the same youngsters shown and other comrades.

Wonderful images and one of my research areas of interest. This unbekannt is of course SS-Ostuf. Georg Isecke although I'm sure we are aware of that by now since this was posted. Isecke maintained a very distinctive shape to his Schirmmütze as worn. Here are few more of Isecke from the files.

Isceke is pictured below in this distinct other uniform of his, EKI above PAB with medal bar, in this Bundearchiv foto from March 1943 where Schönberger(front) and back row left to right as viewed are Wünsche, Tiemann,  Isecke, von Westernhagen, and unbekannt during awarding ceremony for members of the Stug Abt.
