Request for Identification of Generals and Admirals

Post by VJK » 11 Jan 2003 18:46

Hi!

I have 3 more pics to which I would like to put names - can anyone help?
The first is a RKT, the second a Generalleutnant, Divisional commander in Italy in May, 1944 and as for the third - who is he and what is the award around his neck?

Your help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

VJK

The first one, the RKT, is Ferdinand Schaal.

Many thanks Jeff!

I thought that the face was familiar, but just couldn't put a name to it. In retrospect of course (as always!) it's obvious. Thanks again.

Regards,

Hi VJK,
I'm sorry I don't know who the third officer is but it looks as though he is wearing the Grand Comanders badge of the house of Hohenzollern, the ruling family of Prussia, then Germany until 1918. It still is awarded by them on their own authority.

Also looks like he has on his ribbon bar the EK, the Honour Cross for war veterans with swords a long service award and another ribbon with a device that might be another prussian order..? Very hard to see all of the ribbon bar clearly, is it clearer in the original photo..?

Hi Matt!

I've tried to blow-up the ribbon bar, though the result is less than perfect. Perhaps it may help though?

Regards,

I'll try again with the blown-up version this time. Sorry about that!

I know this picture from one of my books, unfortuneally without names.
But I guess it's Borrmann second from the left and right from him Presschef Dittrich, Hitler of course, and than v Brauchitsch.
The nearest General is v Schoberth.

Hi!

I believe this picture is from a spring-manoeuvre 1939 in the area of
St.Pölten, Lower Austria (today the capital L.Austria); west 60 km near Vienna. It was also the location 4. Leichte Division (Ligth D.) former austrian "Schnelle (fast) Division" and following (1.40) 9th Armoured Div.
On my old single-picture (sorry, it`s bigger but the quality ist not good) I identify left from Hitler Himmler, Bormann and right Gen. Brauchitsch and wider presumed GM (Mayor-G.) Ritter von Hubicki, Div. Cdr. (I dont think it`s Halder).

Hi,

I don't think it is von Schobert. Could that be von Hubicki? Maybe!

Any specialist to give an opinion?

Hi VJK!


The third general looks like GLT Helmut FRIEBE, 4.11.94-14.1.1970.
I´m fairly sure about it.
