The uniform on the picture seem to be a german. but the sign on the cap isn`t.
There is a deadhead color tab, maybe with pink edge (i think that the Panzer Artillery had the same kind of tabs, but the form looks like a Hermann Goring Division panzer unit tab)
I have never seen a shoulder mark like the one on the photo. If the white line was double,we would say that is a SS-Junker tab....

Does anybody knows something about this uniform?

Looks very like the Edelweiss, which is the symbol of the Gebirgsjäger (mountain troops).

The symbol on the cap is lion. The picture is taken in 1943 in Bulgaria and the man on it is Bulgarian junker.
