Who is the person to the right of Kumm and who are the others? When and where was the photo taken?

Best regards/ Danie

This photo was discussed in another thread (about Prinz Eugen photos, found in the Heer & Waffen-SS section). I can ID the tallest man in the photo, that is Hans Kempin, who formerly served under Kumm in the Der Führer Reg. and by this time (early summer 1943) commanded the Panzergrenadier Schule at Prosetsnitsch/Kienschlag. He was apparently giving Kumm and Phleps a tour of the facility, while they were based nearby at Milowitz, raising the stab for the V. SS-Freiwilligen Gebirgskorps.
