Caption said I/FernAG 122. I only have 4 RKT pilots ranked Leutnant and above unidentified from this unit. Can anyone tell if this was any of the following:
Nikolaus Büsen
Alfred Gemsjäger
Hans Strassmair
Richard Taubert

Pic seems to show a Lt. Gemsjäger and Strassmair were LTs when they won the RK

And now a couple of bomber pilots....

Freiherr

Neither looks like Taubert. Gemsjäger was awarded KC posthumously so he could be the one on the left. I have no picture of Büsing.

I should have said 'no picture of Büsen'. Typo.

Thanks, John. Just a very timely post. According to Scherzer, what you posted was Wagenfeld. Scherzer is clearly wrong -- I have other pics of Wagenfeld. But may I ask you your source?

This was an interesting find from Ebay. The first pic showed a person that served with 5/FAG122!!! There were two not very clear pics of RKTs in this album. One said Mitau and I could see it was Werner Breese. This second one said Pleskau. I believe 5/FAG was in Pleskau 8.41 to 11.41 -- the only ObFwb RKT from FAG122 was Günther Becker who won it on 28/2/45. Any idea?

Thank you Freiherr.

My photo came from the Scherzer CD as far as I recall.

As regards FAG 122, what prompted me to post on the other thread was the photo currently on Kai Winkler. I knew that Nemecek was awarded the same day as Hemmer, but the man in the Kai Winkler picture did not look like the Nemecek photo I have.

I have no photo of Günther Becker.

Hi John,

In which case we are not sure what you posted was Taubert. I saw that at the Kai Winkler site too. I have a couple more pics of Nemecek and it was the same guy. Perhaps you can PM me your e-mial address and we can compare notes.

As to other Winkler new found treasures, I don't recognize 32901, 32911 and 32912, 32913, 32914.

The others are pretty straight forward:
32903 and 32904 Tritsch
32908 Peter Paul Breu
32902 Kurt Bühligen
32909 Fritz Köhler, incidentally Kmdr of FAG122
32910 Hanns Heise

Cheers
Freiherr

Gentlemen a photo of Herbert Duppenbecker is coming to me shortly well at least this is whom I was told. RK Kdr of I./Pz. Gr. 79, but here is the glich, the RK winner is wearing a field grey Assault gunners wrap. would this be the case as Kommandeur of I./PZ G. 79 or is the pic possibly just that, one of the Sturmgeschütze units ?

many thanks in advance of any information .....
