In 5.jpg, isn't it unusual for the Knights Cross to be presented by a Hauptmann? Most photos seem to show the ceremony being conducted by a General or Admiral. Perhaps there is someone else present but not shown in the photo.

These three appear uncaptioned on the Militariaweb auction site. Can anyone ID them?

17.jpg posted by Bake and Id'ed by Alex as Höhne and Rupp is a tough one. I know this was in a InfDiv 30 album. So it would be von Basse possibly with his Johanniter and not Rupp. Two more pieces of possible leads are: these soldiers did not look like Jägers from 97 JG Div without those distinctive short mountain boots and I think I see a pip on the general's shoulder. Rupp was GenMj when Höhne earned RK ( Höhne did get DK too in 1945 nad of course EL later)

If it were v Basse, the the easy fit would have been Karl Ulrich Claussen of ArtRgt30. But Claussen earned DK before RK. My only other possible answer would be Klause Juergensen during v Basse's command. No DK.

Hi bake,

Try harder instead of just posting them. It's a lot more fun that way. Fischer Weikersthal decorating Killian Weimar in 8.jpeg. It was posted in this same precise thread before. 9.jpeg is also a very common one.

Cheers

Ref 17jpg-it did look a lot like Hohne,but Freiherr is
right on 30th ID,it is as Elwyn points out the Dkig problem,but
it is def Karl-Ulrich Clausen and it looks as the right arm is obscuring
the award,remember some recipients wore this well below the pocket
