The last pictures from Belgium dated 17.3.1944 - date is not right!!
The document itself is dated 17.3.1944. The photo's were probably stolen earlier, also developed and distributed by the Germans. So the actual date of the photo can be way earlier.

Hello
Found 414 in Hans Sakkers book page 102 - "12.3.1944 Wissant"
415 and 416 must both be: "8.3.1944 Bretagne, Strand von Lannilis"
417 must be in Belgium, but dated before 17.3.1944 most likely december 1943 - place still unknown.

Hello
414 and 415 I have not seen before with an exact location.
416 is in Hans Sakkers book about Rommel at page 96 with the caption: "8.3.1944 Bretagne, Strand von Lannilis" Mentioned officers in this photo could be: Generalleutnant Karl Spang / 226 I.D. and maybe Generalleutnant Richard Schimpf / 3 Fallsch. Jg. Div. and Viceadmiral Ruge is there also. General d. Infanterie Straube is also mentioned - but I can only ID Rommel and Ruge.
417 no idea - yet :-)
Regards
