addition:

looked at the picture again and it looks more like "dd" than "tt" ...

than he fits better:

rank: uffz
first name: felix
last name: middendorf
unit: 5./KG 55 (greif)
date of death & place: 27./28.06.1944; no place
note: missing


source: http://www.denkmalprojekt.org/2017/v...-m-sa_wk2.html (german)

ps.:
is that an original picture from an album?
what's on the front?

thanks

Thanks for the info, Ghost. Very much appreciated.

There is a Leutnant depicted on the front. In Henry L. deZeng IV and Douglas G. Stankey's Luftwaffe Officer Career Summaries List a Middendorf Heinrich and Max can be found so possibly it's one of those two.
