Oh I now remember these pics.... there were hundreds of negatives and these are the only interesting ones. I put them aside somewhere but now I can't find them as I am knee deep with Kaiserlich GenLt under "G"
I think the evidence tilts towards Kalmukoff, even though all we have is a crappy WW1 pic. First I can scrape together these two Lechner. Left is my guess as it comes from some Rick White AOK 2 Art album. Right is captioned.
Evidently 31 ID was the correct bet --- Joppien's JG 51 flew out of Bobruisk and Orscha, HrGr Mitte. Lechner was Arko beim GrenzTr Saarpfalz so with XII Korps before Barbarossa but moved on to Hr Gr Nord with XXIII Korps upon invasion.
No clue what Keiner was wearing underneath his EKI. I have never really seen any pic of him with his breast pocket. With his walking stick, it might be a distorted wound badge in gold?
