100% sure, based on his picture on the"Weg und Schicksal der 11.Inf.-Div" by W.Buxa. Podzun- Verlag 1952.

Hi Vienna & Miocid!

Many thanks for your speedy input, it is much appreciated. Although it isn't patricularly clear, I suspected that the General now identified as Feyerabend is wearing the Kurland cufftitle. You don't often see pics of it in wear by senior officers! I agree that #1 has a similarity to Gustav Wagner, but perhaps someone has some other suggestions?

Many thanks again and regards,

VJK

Hello again!

I'll kick myself for not recognising this General, but for the life of me I just can't put a name to the so familiar face!

Regards,

VJK

Hello

I would have a suggestion to do to all members who have posted an identification request in this thread which becomes increasingly long and consequently difficult to access :

In order to ease future reading, would you be OK for the following thing :

Once the soldier was identified, the member who has requested the ID would have to update the concerned thread containing the picture and would have to insert the name of the Knights Cross holder.

Thus :
- people wouldn't have to consult several tens of pages to find a name,
- if the identification was wrong, it would be easier to detect
- if the picture wouldn't have a caption notifying the recipient's name, we should consider the soldier has not been identified yet and this could increase the response rate

I think this is the simpliest way to share the mass of information included in this thread. Any advices/opinions are welcome.
Regards
Denis
