Hi,

Two questions about this picture:

Image

- Who is the ungar. general next to Generaloberst Walter WEISS?
- What is the decoration he is wearing around his neck and his right pocket? I think it might be the Grosskreuz des Königl. Ungarischen Verdienstordens am Kriegsdekorationbande mit Schwertern. All opinions are welcome.

Cheers,

Gregg.

Hello freiherr

His photo was also in the album which I own.
His name is not known though regrettable (nothing caption). However, the division which he visited is seen somewhere.

Division 538,

In addition, some photos,

Hi Gregg,

If it were Walter Fries (kind of very difficult to see), who would be the RKT?

Yes,, Weise was indeed wearing the Hungarian Order of Merit. The Hungarian general was probably from Hungarian Seconf Army -- certainly not Gustav Jany. But then I can't even read the rank insignia :cry:


Cheers

After a bit of trial and error, the accepted spelling of the second man from the right was Nikola Zhekov -- Chief of the Bulgarian General Staff during the WW1. He was invited to visit here the Maginot Line after the fall of France -- no date mentioned. He was exiled to Germany in 1944 and died in 1949. Second general from left looks quite like Gäde wearing a Bulgarian order. But he only made GenMj in 12.43. Any suggestions on all the other generals?

Cheers
Freiherr

Hi Elwyn,interesting post,it certainly looks like Gaede,obvious Bulgarian
connections because of his positions there between June 42-Sept 44,but
possibly on a visit to the Channel coast but not the year mentioned on the site.
I was looking at the the General in the middle as maybe GL W Meise Chief
of Pioneers Army Group B.

Hi Freiherr,

Thank you so much. I think the Ritterkreuzträger is Major Helmut MEITZEL.

Cheers,

Gregg.
