Hello! Wanted to ask if anyone may be able to identify the two generals next to the japanese ones? One of them appears to be a knights cross holder. I cant really identify the medal on his pocket. Maybe it helps to figure out who the second one is? Thanks for the help!

The general identified here viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14230&p=1811148&hil ... l#p1811148 as Petzel is not him. Any ideas on who he might be? The photo was taken in Mostar, Bosnia (Petzel had nothing to do there).

Hello, Gregg

I've only now discovered that Andrey already wrote the same thing. But Dieter disagreed, making a good point about different insignia...

See: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14230&p=1928501&hil ... r#p1928478

The mystery person does appear to have an "HV" on his shoulder boards and he was meeting the "Prinz Eugen" Division's intendant.

So: an intendant who flew into Mostar to meet a fellow intendant, mid-1943... Who might he be?

Cheers,
Ivan
