Sorry Elwyn, you are wrong with Weyer. Not Weyer according to the decorations. The officer is wearing a rare cross of the Grand Duchy of Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach (the white one). I have only a few active officers in my list who received it (Frhr. v. Boineburg-Lengsfeld, Eckstein, Förster, v. Goeckel, v. Hartmann, v. Hippel, v. Knobelsdorff, Laux, Roese, Rüdel, Schmidt [Kurt], Starke, Zünckel).
According to the decorations it is Gen. d. Pi. Otto Förster, relieved from his army corps command in the winter crisis 1941/1942 by OKW.
The pic obviously was taken in the time frame Oct. 1939 - May. 1940.
