Bake,
The photo of SS-Hstf Jakob Heidrich has been posted here and on the RK forum (ahf) and on the waf panzerknacker thread by myself. I won this on eBay some time ago with some additional postwar reprints of RKT's. Two of the photo's (this one and one of Hans Hirning) were incorrectly labled. Hans Hirning was an easy one to identify, but there is no Heidrich recognised as a RKT, so I'm desperate to put a name to this face.
I have been told its a 'fantasy photo' (He's wearing an EK2 instead of a RK), but this was fairly common with front line soldiers and I believe this is a real person and I'm trying to identify him. Thanks for re-posting the photo.

Cheers,

Neil

Bäke, those photos are known and I think they have already been posted here.

I checked page 1 and 19 and I didn't find this man listed. I'm talking about SS-Unterscharführer Josef Röllecke (RK: 16.06.1944).
I found a pic of him of him with two PVAs. He's not wearing the RK though. Could anybody confirm if this is really Röllecke?
Here's the pic from: http://www.epier.com/biddingform.asp?1915494

The name of this could be "Only the RK is missing"
