Hey!
Picture 1 is being auctionerd in e-bay and the caption reads "Generalmajor Erich SCHUMANN HVA". I have not been able to find any general with that name. However I think it has got a great resemblance with generalmajor Hans-Albrecht LEHMANN whose portrait from Biblio Verlag I am attaching under pic. 2.
I would appreciate your opinions. Thanks.

This is Hubertus v Aulock. It came from Camp Clinton, POW camp in Georgia (?) here in the States. I wrote them an email well over 10 years ago and they were so nice and gave me a copy of some of the POWs.

Hi,

The General with Ringel looks very much like Hans Kreysing.

Best regards,

Id: Gen. d. Pi. Otto Förster

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.

Hi,

I agree with Jürgen - here is another pic of Otto Förster as confirmation.

Very best regards,

Valdis
