Good morning Dieter ! very happy about our first "meeting" btw :D :D

you are pushing in a small wound of id history I think.
The man was identified and I'm (nearly) sure he is Erich Löwe.
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 20#p519020
One small additional argument supporting this : he was still Hptm. in summer 1941 (promoted to Major on 1 Apr 1942).
There was unsureness about another pic which appears to be showing really the same man.

I haven't re-asked this case yet. Elwyn was on the trace the man on page 45 could be Richard Laukat, Kdr. II./AR 103.
Maybe we can get clearness about those two now.

Best regards
Bernd

@Terry,
thanks for confirmation of Ritter von Schobert. Not yet captioned because I was waiting for an eventually positive id of Otto Hartmann. Bit of economy in a 200pp thread. :)

@LRRPS,
you surely mean the "nafa83.jpg" (?). http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 57#p810557
hm, could be. Other opinions ?
For comparisn (I don't think all those (4) pics show the same man).
with Scherer (this should be 100% Biecker) : http://www.ww2incolor.com/german/UBiB_2 ... ecker.html
said to be Biecker ; award ceremony without steel helmet ?
http://www.ritterkreuztraeger-1939-45.d ... Albert.htm
and one from my files (said to be Biecker once in mil321.com)

Kurt,

if you have a name or an idea for the name you can also check the index on p. 1 of this thread. Herbert Berger is already listed with that very Getty image :wink:

Hello Bernd

Thanks for the advice :D

I am new to this - so any help and advice are welcome.

You will see that most of my posts here on AHF is in the Fortification topic - but sometimes a name or a picture turns up in that connection.

Regards
Kurt
