This is another photo originally from the same source, but was unfortunately sold separately. Apparently he was with the W-SS Artillery,  dated 11.9.1942.
Text reads:  "Ein deutscher Artillerist. Ein Kämpfer deutscher Zukunft. Ein Bruder deutscher Sch...?   Will deutsch bleiben solang ich lebe.  Euer Michael."
Dated 11.IX.1942 and illegible place (Westen?)
