Diekmann from his Résumé of 1942
Adolf Rudolf Reinhold Diekmann. This photograph is from his résumé of 18th August 1942 during which time he was an instructor at the Bad Tölz Junkerschule. It is not a very good image, due to its being photocopied from a microfilm of the original records, in the future I will try to obtain a better copy. The photograph seems to have been taken by natural light, rather than use flash and shows Diekmann as a Hauptsturmführer, a rank to which he was promoted on 20th April 1942. The 20th April was Hitler's birthday and was often used as a common promotion date within the SS.
