The signature Von Sommerfeld may be of some interest, and worthy of further research, as the full cognomen is uncommon. (Constantin von Summerfeld, brother of Hans, the other candidate for this signature died in 1940).Hans Von Sommerfeld German Lieutenant General of the Wehrmacht. Born Madgeburg 7th Jan 1888. Born into a military family, during WW1 he received both the Iron Cross (first and second class) and the Knight's Cross of the Royal Order of Hohenzollern, as well as other awards. Member of the Johanniter Order.

The date 21.4.47 is written on the rep. It is recorded that von Sommerfeld was not released as US prisoner of war until 1947. Following the end of the war, British and American authorities agreed to hold their highest-ranking Wehrmacht prisoners until some semblance of order could be restored to Germany.

Died 1961 Monchengladbach.
