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 SS Junkerschule. The photograph has been copied from his microfilmed original file and is not a particularly good image, having suffered some damage in the past. 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 for personnel within the SS.
