    Hey guys. So I sometimes try to look up the identity of soldiers I see either in historical memes, music videos or combat footage videos, purely out of interest. Right now, I'm trying to find out who this fellow is, but to no avail - all my search led me to more footage or music videos. Hoping someone here could help me. Thanks.

    I would like any kind of information on the 575th AA Battalion 11th Armored Division 3rd Army.

    He appears in several youtube clips regarding the battle of Stalingrad, for instance:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MuLa7CM9mEg right at the beginning.
    (Russian voice-over [I used subtitles] mention 6th Army, 113. Inf. Division, but the visuals accompanying the story are most likely generic 'German soldiers')

    Description of his on-screen actions;
    He is looking to the right of the screen, smoking a cigarette, then turns his face to the camera and blows smoke in the direction of the camera.
    Still searching for a needle in a haystack...
