I have to affirm what Hucks said. The context is always 50% of an identification. Which kind of documents are these? Which units?
There are times in history when staying neutral means taking sides.

I understand Your point of view (I´d ask You the same.....), but I thought + hoped You´d decipher the names as experts just looking at the signatures (like it were a normal letter in sutterlin ), without needing for their units, which at the moment I´m not able to give You because these are part of very old docs. and I´d need time to find them in my old data collection. Thanks anyway

P.S.: after some time of research I found the second/last one only (from an old note, no doc.), but it´s not much. He was Maj. in a Pz.Tr.Schule (or FJ.Schule d. Pz.Tr.), no date.
So, I guess that the little data above does not help You much to find this Graf (unless You have him), does it ?
In such a case try at least to decipher his name and give me Your possible idea/solution
For me in the name there are the following difficulties :
What may the (1st) capital letter be ? Then what may the (3rd + 5th) high+deep letters be, f, g, p, or/and h ?
Finally, what may the (4th) letter be ? Your opinion ?
