Hi everybody!

Now I'm looking for pictures of the General Leutnant Alfred Thielmann Kdr of the 264ª Infanterie Division. I searched for pictures of him in the forum and I didn't ahve success, also I search in the site that hucks216 refered me, with the same results, It's more difficult to find pics of this Kdr, By the way I already found one picture of Walther Kreuse

Always grateful!

Hallo Adalberto and Patricio,

I can only contribute a paper-copy of a poor quality of the original pic in the Sammlung Krug in BArch/MilArch Freiburg:
I hope this helps a little bit

Thielmann never commanded the 264 Infantry Division. He commanded the 254 Infantry Division from 16th August 1943 to 20th March 1944. He won't be listed on the website I listed previously as he never won the Knights Cross, but he did achieve a very rare 'double' winning both the DKiG & DKiS.
Here is some information on him (in German)...
