Hello,

new in my collection!

Is this really later KC-holder General Dr. Georg Pfeiffer?

Kind regards

Hello,

I am not sure that photo 70 shows RUDOLF Hofmann (KC 07.05.1945). Were there more than one Hofmann?

See: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=22105&p=192622&hilit=Rudolf+Hofmann&sid=d83e78cc8b68c6cf5b7de0f84b9d2ffa#p192622

The last one looks like Felix Steiner

The source is in the pic: http://pixpast.blogspot.com/2013/10/ger ... bdias.html

Thank you!

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14230&p=1716175&hilit=+Saur+Held#p1716175

If Ruslan and Miocid were right about Karl Held in the pics in the above link, then gen #4 can only be v Saur... after all, we see another fat ribbon in the buttonhole that looks even more like the MMJO this time

Here we have the same gang from L-R

- Who was the RTK that was presumably Wachenfeld's Chef or Ia?
- Ginckel, I think
- Kaspar
- our man in question
- Hans Georg Hofmann
- x
- Wachenfeld
- Graf


Cheers

Hi!

In an alternative version, it may be Generalleutnant von Kieffer, commandant of München?

maybe it would be easier with a right picture....

Ritter von Kieffer is a good idea. He owned MMJO. Here a pic of him for comparing.
