The German Lieutenant was a Nazi lieutenant that was part of the convoy escorting the Ark of the Covenant from Tanis to Cairo. He served under the command of Major Gobler

Biography Edit

In 1936, he served under the command of Major Gobler during the escort to Berlin to carry the Ark of the Covenant. He rode in the troop car with Gobler and his gunner. However, during the chase, he was killed when Indiana Jones forced them off a cliff.

Behind the scenes Edit

The German Lieutenant was portrayed by stuntman Reg Harding in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

In the third draft of the film's original script, this character doesn't exist. Instead, Arnold Ernst Toht was the one in the troop car with Gobler and died along with Gobler after falling down the cliff after the German Gunner fell on the road during The Desert Chase.[1][2] This was cut from the final film, but the film's novelization depicts this.[3]

His epaulets indicate that he is a 2nd lieutenant.
