Hi Schuddie

At the risk of being a nuisance, I would like to repeat that I believe the two images on page 930 are not Müncheberg, as captioned. Apart from the similarities to Ruffer, mentioned in the link above, the man in the pictures appears to have the rank of Hauptmann, while Müncheberg was awarded as Oberleutnant.

A picture postcard, measuring 87x137mm, extremely fine condition with minor creasing. It shows an Oberleutnant (Senior Lieutenant) wearing a Knight’s Cross. On the reverse he is identified as a Rittmeister. Unfortunately his name is indecipherable. The picture bears slight resemblance to Georg Pröhl (1913–2008), leader of the 2nd Company of Jäger Regiment 39 (L).
Need confirmation: is he really Pröhl?

It shows two officers. The one on the left is a Hauptmann, the one on the right a Generalleutnant. They both wear a Knight’s Cross, and the General wears an additional German Cross and Clasp to the Iron Cross 1st Class.
