This is quite a famous photo of Joseph Kramer at Belsen. It is the soldier on the right of the picture I was needing help with. My grandfather was an British MP, we don't know if he was at Belsen but it is the spitting image of him. I am conducting the research for my father who saw the picture on a History Channel documentary.

Really any info on the soldier RHS would be useful - I know that you guys are amazing - see what you can do:)

yours, in all sincerity,

It could be Eric Clyne or Sidney Roberts

Or it could be Sgt Ray Donkersloot from Grimsby

Or it could be someone else.

A more reliable source might be from the source documents of Kramer's trial, which might detail his arrest and those involved, but you'll need to get the documents from the UK National Archives.
