Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler converses outside with Rudolf Schmundt at Wolfsschanze (Wolf's Lair), Hitler's field headquarters in Rastenburg, East Prussia. Pictured in the foreground from left to right are: Rudolf Schmundt, Heinrich Himmler and Karl Wolff. Also pictured is Martin Bormann (in the background without a hat, between Schmundt and Himmler)
Is it Walther Buhle between Schmundt and Bormann?

Buhle would be a few sizes bigger, I would think.

Here's LXXXVIII. Korps with Reinhard in Holland 1944. There were Rommel and most likely Eberding in the konvolut. Who's standing next to Reinhard? Running out of candidates. I think Isee carmine stripes on trousers of the officer with a piece of paper under his arm. Could be Reinhard's chef Obst iG Curt Eichert Wiersdorff.

Cheers

Hello, Elwyn!

From this angle looks like he has a strange crooked mouth. Maybe Sievers? Most likely DKiG or DKiS on the right side of his tunic.

Best wishes
Ruslan

Possible, thanks. I can never figure out Sievers .. the right side of his face seems to be very disfigured (nerves severed?).

Cheers

Thanks, Unterstab. I believe this pic taken in the same time, but now with clearer picture of the general in question...

Hi Elwyn!

Suggesting that the third man left side ist Rommels's Adjudant Hellmuth Lang. The flags - Higher Comandflags on the car - WL = Luftwaffe, left I mean Wehrmachtsbefehlshaber (Niederlande) and Armeekommando (25.?).

Hi Vienna,

Indeed you are right. Well done. Man with glasses and Pz wrap was Hellmuth Lang. He was spotted in pz uniform before.

The limousine pennant is a mystery to me. I used to be quite good at this sort of thing but I can't remember having seen this. I do notice the limo came from the LW. Is a WM befehlshaber allowed to bear the HrGr sign? AOK 25 for sure.

Cheers
Elwyn

@mansteinpearl: it´s not Manstein on this pic. Manstein was already Generalleutnant when WW2 startet in 1939. And you can see that this man on the pic is an senior officer wearing the 1939-Spange on his EK II-ribbon.

Hi,

Austrian general on page 81 (loehningmaybejy2.jpg) - I suppose it's Adalbert Lontschar? :idea:

Best wishes

Hi Elwyn!

Please look at "Niederlande"
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wehrmachtbefehlshaber

...he became - Friedrich Christiansen - authority and position of an Army-CiC (Armeeoberbefehlshaber - sign) 1942
