Help with Sutterlin (back photo) - 1

Although a deciphering alphabet has been posted here by one member of the Forum, on a previous thread, for most of us non-native speakers of German it is indeed hard to "translate" what is written behind some photos.

I am therefore asking help to discover the names or clues to persons behind some of those, on the previous threads. Some are with me for years and only now did I had time to scan them properly and to try to find out more about them.

Who is the Oberslteutnant in Russia (1941) informed on this back photo?

Hello Adriano,

the text is
"Juni 1941 mein Beobachter Obstl Bleines vor dem Einsatz".

Regards
Leo

LEO,

My deepest gratitude. I hadn't a glimpse of the Family Name of this Officer. I knew he was an Obstlt and that it was Russia, but nothing more.

Again my humblest GRATITUDE and huge THANKS!

Adriano Baumgartner

Seems he was involved in movie making before the war (1933-35 at least). Do not know if the same man....but perhaps...No information, sadly either on the back of the photograph or from the seller to the unit involved. Most probably a reconaissance outfit...either for the Army or for the LW.

A.
