    Thanks, Owen. He was probably an SAR tanker. I think this helmet style was worn by tankers because the broad brim on a Canadian infantry helmet would be awkward. The marking on the side of it remains a mystery. It would be easier to identify if we knew the colour.

    He's an SAR Tankie, no doubt. That style of helmet was worn by Dispatch Riders, Paratroopers and Tankies. This is the tankies version.

    He is a 1st class lieutenant and a troop commander, probably 2IC by this time in the battle.

    And that is 2IC of C Squadron of the SAR under Major Currie. As far as Captain Rauch goes, he was never handed over to the ASHCAN's. He was arrogant and cocky and we(the Canadian's) didn't have the manpower to take care of problem POW's.
