12997 Tombstone

6/24/2009 I am trying to read the inscription on this stone, but am having great difficulty, due to the contrast issues against the material the stone's made of.

I am trying to make out the name of the father, which I think says "Yehuda", but there's more there, and the decedent's name is written twice and looks like it might be a compound name(?), which has me puzzled.

Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. I have a second image of the same stone, from a different angle, which follows.

6/24/2009 Second image of Pinchas Rechtschaffen's tombstone, shot from a different angle, which is of less help than it ought to be.

Any help in translating is appreciated, specifically his full name and/or title and that of his father.

12974 Do you recognize?

6/21/2009 We believe this woman to be Eva Dattel, or Datel. She may have changed her name to get to safety in England. Parents were Mayer and Feiga Dattel who lived near Lemberg. We don't have the name of the groom. Identification of the uniform and his unit were not possible. Not enough visible markings to read. View the post, there are no responses
