Now i´m searching is promotion to Standartenführer. I was convinced by the two photos that I posted, Max Wünsche was an Sturmbannführer. Now, I know it was not in Normandie. The promotion to Obersturmbannführer was in January of 1944, yes Mr.Youn the photos are tricky and your search are CORRECT. To all of you that posted here and everyone who saw this topic and has been misled because of my statements please forgive my stubbornness and accept my apologies.
