If Oberst Sorko, then the general is possibly Hans Schlemmer......

This appeared a good decade ago with Militärzeit(?) Münster 1941 written on the back

I had it down as Joachim Peltz Kdr. Truppenübunsgplatz Munster WK X. But maybe Gerd Scherbening Div zbV 406 WK VI Münster! Some resemblance to the Sammlung Krug pic.

Date is a bit off.....

But this is from a konvolut heavily related to WK VIII. In related pics we saw Kempski as Kdr Truppenübungsplatz Neuhammer WK VIII and whom I think must be v Amann earlier kmdr of Truppenübungsplaz Neuhammer and now before his appointment as Kmdt v Breslau.

Bornemann was Kdr Div Nr 148 WK VIII 01.09.39 - 10.01.40 and according to axishistory.com again in this position 07.02.40 - 10.10.40.
The date 13.10.42 is a bit awkward unless Bornemann was invited as former kmdr of the unit. But Koch Erpach (ex-R?) was easily explained by him being stellv WK VIII and v Schauroth (with glasses) as WEI Breslau

Sorry, but if you mean Karl Bornemann, former Austrian officer, then you are wrong. Wether reassamblance nor an austrian ribbon bar....

Here a pic of Bornemann:

Hello Elwyn
ref. Your remark "That's not Eberhardt but Boehm-Tettelbach Kdr Korück 581 and Wilck QuM Korück 581"
Now it has full sense, bravo !
I guess that Wilck is the officer shawn with cross at his neck, is he ?
Do You mean that he was Qu.(Ib, Quartiermeister) not QuM, right ?
One last question, Who was the Ia ? Do You have an officer list of Korück 581 ?
Thanks, Rossano
