Obst Gerlach von Gaudecker Zuch, RKT

Hi,

The first picture from the left was identified by Das-ritterkreuz.de as von Gaudecker Zuch of 33 PzGrRgt, 4 Pz Div. Second picture from left looks like the same person. However, third and fourth pictures were also listed as him by the 2nd vol of 4th Pz Div by Concord Publications. They don't look like the same person. Would anyone know who's correct?

cheers

Hi,

Major Heinz Knoche, last FHr of PzGrRgt 33 received RK on 05.04.1945. Here is a picture from Das-Ritterkreuz.de of him that resembles the commander in the SPW. The original caption also identified the second officer in the SPW as Hptm Joachim Diesener. This is probably also incorrect as Diesener received the RK earlier on 26.09.1943 and Das-Ritterkreuz.de has a slightly different looking person.

Cheers

Freiherr
