Hello

A new one from E-Bay.de, the caption say: "General Rommel Eisenbahn Ferngeschütz Feuerstellung bei Marquise 1944"

I dont think it is Rommel, any opinions? Rommel did not wear spurs, did he?

Regards
Kurt

It is not Rommel, that's for sure.

Hi guys,
for a book I'm looking for a good photo showing Rommel, Marcks and Von Schlieben during one of Rommel's visits.
I'm having trouble finding one that suits my needs and won't break the bank. Perhaps some of the members here have some in their own personal collection they'd be interested in sharing (will pay if needed)

This one would be my first choice, but I only seem to be able to find a good copy through Getty

Suggestions of other photos showing these three men and/or leads where to find them would be very much appreciated!

Niels

Here you have, Niels.

I got one more, but von Schlieben is partially hidden.

Hello Graveland, thanks for the help.

Just to be clear: does this one come from your own collection or is it just a copy you downloaded somewhere?
The reason for asking is that the good quality images online all seem to directly originate from Getty (the spec under Von Schlieben's eye suggests this one does too). Getty is not a party you want to come after you (legitimate or not). I can basically finance a short study trip from the money Getty charges, which is why I'm looking for an alternative source (or an alternative image)

Hi Niels,

It is just a copy I downloaded somewhere, although I identified to Marcks and von Schlieben long time ago.

Hello

From E-Bay.de two pictures from an Inspection of Rommel and his Staff - but who and where - and if possible a date?

Regards
Kurt

Second photo - Alfred Gause(left), Rommel and I'd say Generalleutnant Friedrich FÜRST(right).
