I bought a couple pics of Adolf Galland a while ago, but I need some help identifying the other people in the pics - in the first pic it's a little hard to make out, but there appears to be a few others of them wearing the Knight's Cross (would also appreciate knowing if there's anyone of signifigance in first pic regardless of whether they have Knight's Cross). I numbered those in the first pic for ease of response.
1 Adolf Galland - 2 Günther Lützow - 3 Werner Mölders - 4 Carl Viek (later Stab/Jafü2) - 5 Theodor Osterkamp - 6 Günther von Maltzahn - 7 General Paul Deichmann (Kdr. 1. Flieger-Division) / AHF id
~Thanks, Rob
