Is it possible to identify this RKT+unit,location is Kurland in may 1945.
Jürgen Gauß, KC: 28.03.1945, Hauptmann, Führer einer Kampfgruppe der 12. Panzer-Division / AHF id
Still open for discussion are the 4.. turret numbers [visible on entire photo series], maybe the II./PR 29 was inofficially renamed I./PR 29 because the I. Abteilung obviously was not about to return to the Division !?

Hello, Bernd,

On Page 21 listed as 49jpg, you ask for an id. That is a pic of Hermann-Albert Schrader, I.R. 16.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Hello, again, Bernd,

On page 35, there are three pix of two naval officers listed under unk. rkt (44, 45, 46) jpg. respectively. I am not sure who is on the right, but the officer on the left is Alfred Vetter. No doubt about that.

On page 83, there is a series of 6 KC holders. Listed under unk. 6 is a pic of Wilhelm Kern.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Hello, again, Bernd,

I do not know if this was identified, however, on page 104 listed under pict0329.jpg is a pic of General Georg Wilhelm Postel.

P. 107, the same pic of Wilhelm Kern is shown.

P. 134-not a positive id, as far as I can tell, but it was hinted at. Under U178yn9.jpg is a photo of submarine commandant Wilhelm Dommes.

Also on Page 134 is a series of 4 pix connected displayed in increments of two each. The top right officer in the first pair is a picture of Karl-Heinz Wiebe.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
