Hi Terry,

Great ID on Palmgreen and Michael Fischer. I cheated and used relational database -- the other man was Hägele :P


Hi Bernd,

In front of Gollnick should be v d Chevallerie. RKT general at v Schobert's funeral .... just a guess, his subordinate corp commander v Salmuth.

Cheers

On page 1, a large color photo listed as UB Ritterkreuzträger 11.jpg.

That is a picture of Peter Eil.

His granddaughter sent me a signed pic of the man.

Hope this helps.

Terry
I have corrected that. The man was misidentified as Uffz. Walter Pape.
There seem to be not many pics available of Eil, GR 105. There is a Landser Grossband about him and most probably there are pics in Gerd Nietrug, Die Ritterkreuzträger des Saarlandes 1939-1945

The other question then : how does look Walter Pape (KC in 1941 for France 1940) ?

Hi Elwyn and all,

those where the judgement is, let's say 99,99%, I have listed in the z.b.V. section for the time being. Done for Kurt von der Chevallerie and Hans von Salmuth.

The index allows to look for all not indentified (according to the evaluation of the higher pages I reach). Done up to page 5 now.

Thanks, Bernd

I think UB XVI 2 was identified as Matthias Poll.

I have one question about the RK trager of page 32:
the first pic and the others named as Unk. RKT (10)/(8)/(7)/(12) are from a Wochenschau of 1944 about the GD division; trying to identify them on http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de I found that the first pic is used for two person, for Fwb Karl Brösamle and for FWb Fritz Plickat (who,I'm sure, fought in the GD).
So,the question is: could be Plickat instead Brosamle?
For the number 10-8-7 I can't identify them (maybe could the n.8 be Peter Frantz?)
For the n.12 I say Diddo Diddens.
The first of the FJ could be van der Heydte?

thank you

Hello,

On PP 32, listed as 01.jpg, depicting a paratroop officer in helmet is a photograph of Karl-Lothar Schulz.

I do not know if this was identified.

Hope this helps.

Hello, Mr. Toner and other interested parties,

On P7, you had requested confirmation of the name associated with a photo, you had said was not or could not be Rolf Tittel. You had him listed as Tittel, Rolf Erich, jpg. I do not know if this was confirmed to you or not, but that pic is indeed that of Rolf Tittel.

He may have been an enlisted man when he received the KC, but the pic you have posted had to have been taken somewhat later after he had received it.

I received the same photo from him and I can attest to the identity of the man.

Hope this helps, John.

Take care.

Terry


Dear, Mr. Sayer and other interested parties,

On PP 17, you had posted a picture of an enlisted man wearing a Sturmgeschütz tunic, and you had requested a reading of his signature. It is listed as Scan 0015a, jpg. I do not think this was identified for you, but it is a signed pic of

Erich Bansen.

Hope this helps.

Take care, Ian.

Terry

Hi!

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe it could be Karl Boettcher.

Regards,

Thanks John, for page 9 , UB XVI 2 = Matthias Poll
btw, the other one there - UB XV - was identified as Heinz Bödicker. Both Pioniere.
