Ostmann.
In Michael Miller's book "Leaders of the SS and Police. Vol. 1", p. 476, this man positioned as Adolf von Bomhard.

But only Otto von Oelhafen is correct, see also the list of there awards in "Die Generale der Waffen-SS und der Polizei.

Thanks all ! I have added the recipients to the respective sticky sections. I'm still struggling through the models and grades (even the decoration sometimes :oops: ) but I hope it will get better and better.

Other recipients :
Dr. Ernst Robert Grawitz, Geschäftsführender Präsident des DRK
Bruststern des Ehrenzeichens, Modell 1937-39 ; not quite sure if this is the Grosskreuz
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=52881

Gauleiter Arthur Greiser (20.04.1936)
Stern des Ehrenzeichens, Modell 1934-36 ; per
Arthur Greiser dates of awards

Best regards
Bernd

I have had this discussion with Mike before. He maintains it is von Bomhard and I think it is von Oelhafen.

Don't know what I was smoking at the time - bad caption, no way in Hell that's von Bomhard (might have been relying on a Jost Schneider mis-ID); It's definitely von Oelhafen.
