Nice to have you back! It has been years :P

Hahaha, no one else but the first time we see Bruno Ritter v. Hauenschild with a peaked cap next to Schaal. Probably at PzTrSchule Bergen or the later combined PzTrSchulen of Krampnitz and Bergen -- as Hauenschild led 24. Pz in HrGr Süd Gebeit and Schaal was in HrGr Mitte Gebiet.

Cheers
Elwyn
Hello guys

Man above Schneckenberger looks like Schnarrenberger Korück 556 in Afrika. But where was DKiG?

Looks a bit like Jesser indeed but not his ears. They were quite distinctive.

Agreed, Elwyn, it's maybe interesting angle and ears do not look so familiar, but his unique nose, moustache and facial features, on the other side of the scales. This photo from BA series of early "Barbarossa" panzer commanders including Gustav - Adolf Riebel, Richard Koll, Erich Fronhöfer and Erich Löwe.

Best wishes

General in tropical uniform looks like GdI Sigismund von Förster. Here is for comparison: http://forum.axishistory.com/download/file.php?id=65282

Looks like a Sicilian or N African airstrip to me. Men behind were Italian officers. Förster was in the Crimea and he was a very slight man.

Hi!
On page #214 of this thread our friend alirafikkahn posted this picture of ROMMEL with an unknown general that I don´t think it´s been identified so far.
I think he is Generalleutnant Wilhelm RAAPKE , 71 ID commander at that time.
Cheers!

Thanks dear friend,
I have added your identification on page 214 - and will therefore delete your second pic soon.

Hi Miocid,

Makes perfect sense. 71 ID first in Denmark then Trieste made his big boss Rommel being there absolutely logical. Well done.

Cheers

Prima Nicobel - all's well that ends well :D

Foto № 3 shows Generalmajor Alfred Gutknecht, at that time Armee-Kraftfahroffizier beim AOK 15,then beim OB West.
Location: Kapelle-Biezelinge/Holland.

In your pic he is mispelled as Hutknecht !

Hi,

I think on the second pic none of Schröders, but General der Flieger Stefan Fröhlich. :)

Best wishes

SUPERB Miocid! Thank you... :)
Am Donnerstag fand in Meissen unter stärkster Anteilnahme der Bevölkerung die feierliche Beisetzung des nach Erringung von 206 Luftsiegen gefallenen Oberstleutnants Hans Philipp, Trägers des Eichenlaub mit Schwertern zum Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreusez statt. Unser Bild zeigt das Ehrengeleit von Wehrmacht, Staat und Partei an seiner Spitze Generaloberst Keller, Korpsführer der NS-Fliegerkorps, am Grabe des Gefallenen. 16/10-43.
Who is the Luftwaffe general behind Generaloberst Keller?
