Hello, again, Mr. Vermeer,

Not sure that my first note to you was posted.

The Ofw. in your photograph with the Knight's Cross is Ofw. Albrecht Schnitger. He was KIA on 13 Mar 1943 near Rzhev.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry

Hello, Bernd,

2jpg. on page 63 is Eugen Ritter von Schobert. No doubt about that one. It was not captioned and there seemed to be some hesitation to positively id him. But it is von Schobert.

Take care, and hope this helps.
