prisoner on 25/26 June 1944 around Cheux.British Operation Epsom just about eliminated the 12SS pioneer Abt during it's attack. He is an SS Obersturmfuehrer from HJ and given the location he must be from either the Pioneer Abt or possibly the I/SS Arty Regt12. Given by this time the 12SS was getting pretty run down,there can't be too many possibilities for who this Obersturmf. is?
Anyone know how to point me in the direction? I am making a dio of this from a well known pic and it would be cool to link the pic with a name.

If these pics were indeed taken near Cheux then it could not be hard to find out who the officers were. The Axishistory site is down right now so will not be able to help.
