Here is Michael Schröpfer. This is a scan of a period "Sammelbilder" card in a series depicting the "Unteroffiziere des Heeres mit dem Ritterkreuz." Of interest, Fritsch was #25 in this series.

Best regards,
Shawn

Albrecht, Egon
KC: 22.05.1943 as Oberleutnant, Staffelführer 9./ZG 76

bottom - a second photo of (and the only one signed I've seen) : Albrecht, Egon = Albrecht-Lemke, Egon
he was KIA on 25 Aug 1944 near St.Claude northwest of Creil in France.
[source: WA forum and/or a sellers site, I don't recall it ; can't refind it, must have vanished ; one of the threads quoted below contains a watermarked version of the photo]

Of note, here are two AHF threads on him :
Egon Albrecht A Brazilian Ace in the Luftwaffe
Brazilian pilot (Egon Albrecht)
He was born in Curitiba/Brazil. The exact time when he travelled to Germany and his early years in Germany (Hitlerjugend) are next to unknown, somewhat in the dark at least. The name "Albrecht-Lemke" is on the gravestone, too (see threads).
