Someone from Kharkov:
Your Luftwaffen-Officer from St.G. 5(Hauptmann_StG5.jpg) could be ARNULF BLASIG.

I think "t_dsc00001_595.jpg" is Herbert Kaiser.

Someone from Kharkov & Joerg

The only RKT officer from S.G. 5 was Kurt Pape. Could it be him?

To John Toner :
PAPE wasn´t the only RKT officer in the I./St.G.5/SG 5 (existed only this one one group).
Others (not all) were: MARTIN MÖBUS, WERNER HOFFMANN, ERWIN DIEKWISCH, HORST KAUBISCH, JOHANNES PFEIFFER, HANS-KARL STEPP and ARNULF BLASIG.

Not easy, the man on the pic looks like both, Blasig and Pape...

Thanks, Joerg

What I meant was that the only officer AWARDED the Knights Cross as a member of S.G.5 was Pape.

Hello, Bernd and others,

A couple of identifications which I do not think have been previously identified. If so, I apologize in advance for the repetition.

Page 5. 6219_13jpg is a depiction of Karl Radermacher
Page 11. General _xjpg is a General Herbert Loch.
P. 14. unknown_5.jpg and unknown_4jpg are both photos of Feldwebel Johann Biehl.
p. 16. unk._8jpg is a photograph of the later Generalmajor Martin Berg.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry

Two down, Terry ! :D
Radermacher (now when you say it!) and Berg.
Biehl and General Herbert Loch with Kurt Kirchner are indexed already. I missed to add the captions on page 14, done now. Sorry!

That leaves on page 5 the puzzle of who is head 1
Asked four or five times in the thread I think. As I'm curious how often he will appear in the index process I thought to give it try #2 now. :)

Best regards
Bernd
