A post was split off into a new thread entitled "Hitler might have fled to Argentina".

No one answer? I will try to make the list of all the KC recipients lining-up in this picture based on the more famous pic taken from the same event, please correct me if I'm wrong. FLTR: Hauptmann Walther Koch, Oberleutnant Rudolf Witzig, Oberleutnant Gustav Altmann, Oberleutnant Walter Kiess, Oberleutnant Otto Zierach, Leutnant der Reserve Joachim Meißner, Leutnant Egon Delica, Oberarzt Dr. Rolf Jäger, and Leutnant Helmut Ringler...

And... Is it Nikolaus von Below behind Hitler?

Please some help.

Does anyone have a good photo of Oberfeldwebel Karl Koch (1920-1944) that they would be willing for me to use in a forth coming book on the Knight's Cross of the Fallschirmjäger ? You will get credit of course.

Also looking for photos of Leutnant Kurt Kunkel too.

Does anyone have any good photos of other Knights Cross Holders they would be willing to lend me. Please let me know.

Thanks
