An erroneous identification that I have seen in several websites...

Image
Id: This man is General der Panzertruppe Wolfgang Fischer (NOT Rommel)

Image
Id: And this other man is General der Panzertruppe Georg Stumme (NOT Rommel)

Rommel with the staff of Heeresgruppe B, January 1944. Can someone ID them (apart from Alfred Gause on the right)? Source : https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news ... /548805607

Hello, could the officer on Rommels left side (Rommel looks up at him) be Oberst Hans Lattmann - Stoart [Stabsoffizier der Artillerie]? (12.1.1943 - 23.3.1944). The other 3 in the background I have not a clue, yet :-)
Regards
Kurt - kstdk

The man at far left (partially hidden) is Sigfrid Macholz.

Thank you Gregg. You meant far right?
This is said as Rommel with General Wilhelm Raapke (Kommandeur 71. Infanterie-Division). Does someone know where and when this pics was taken? because I couldn't found any connection between Raapke and Rommel, whether in North Africa or in Normandy.

Wiederaufgestellt wurde die Heeresgruppe B am 19. Juli 1943 in München, im Wehrkreis VII durch den Arbeitsstab Rommel. Als Tarnbezeichnung führte der Stab die Bezeichnung "OKW / Auffrischungsstab München". Nach Auffassung Hitlers sollte der „Sonderstab Rommel" im italienischen Operationsgebiet eingesetzt werden. Nach Aufforderung durch das OKW befahl der OB Süd am 26. Juli 1943 die Räumung der Kaserne der Korps-Nachrichten-Abteilung 47 in München zur Unterbringung des als "Arbeitsstab München" getarnten Oberkommandos der Heeresgruppe B bis zum 28.07.1943. Am 1. August 1943 befahl das OKW im Zusammenhang mit der Auslösung „Achse“ die sofortige „ .... Befehlsübernahme über ganz Italien mit voller Bewegungsfreiheit; rasche Besetzung der der gefährdeten Abschnitte Genua - Livorno und Venedig - Trient sowie der Apenin-Übergänge zwischen Livorna und Ancona.“ Am 16. August 1943 wurde dem Oberbefehlshaber der Heeresgruppe B die Verlegung seines Gefechtsstandes nach Norditalien vom OKW freigegeben. Das OKW/WFSt. befahl hierzu: (OKW/WFSt/Op.Nr.004404/43, g.Kdos, KR - Fernschreiben) die "Befehlsregelung zwischen OB Süd und Heeresgruppe B" .....

In short, the connection between Raapke and Rommel is in Italy (August/ September 1943).

On the two pictures posted by udondave at the top of this page the officer on the extreme left is the later GenLt Ernst GERKE.
Cheers
Miocid, I don't think that is GL Ernst Gerke.
The guy on the left seems to have shulder boards of a Hauptmann.
Gerke was already Generalleutnat on march 1943 when ha was placed in Afrika as 'Höherer Nachrichtenführer der Heeresgruppe Afrika'.
What about Sonderführer Dr. Ernst Franz (Dolmetscher Oberbefehlshaber Panzerarmee "Afrika")?
Check this photo from another Rommel topic (viewtopic.php?f=5&t=35452&start=30).

You are quite right, Lado. It is Dr. Ernst Franz.
