Hello, Fangio,

The naval officer depicted standing to the right and behind FM Rommel is Admiral Theodor Krancke, Chief of Naval Staff West.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Hello, again, Fangio,

The LW officer at the immediate right in the second pic is Hartmann Grasser. The other does not come to mind.

Take care.

2nd round review ready up to page 75. Following a short series of omissions, ids which might "go index" finally and issues.

page 60 : Albert Latz, 22. ID, and Div.Grp. 323 (Kgr. Latz)
on the confirmations list ; still no other result than its him (details added to a former re-asking by me) :
this should be indeed Albert Latz , full name Albert-Rudolf , short version (nick, common in german Rolf for Rudolf) "Rolf"
who earned the KC : 30.12.1943 p.m., Oberst z.V., Führer Divisionsgruppe 323 (Kampfgruppe Latz) and was decorated before with 22. Inf.Div. :
Latz, Albert-Rudolf, 27.10.1941, Oberstleutnant, Inf.Rgt. 47 / DKiG
Latz, Albert-Rudolf, 03.10.1941 (403), Oberstleutnant, Fhr. Inf.Rgt. 47 / AU
page 69 : Karl Eglseer (l) and August Sorko (r)
identified already ; definitely (?) ; any objections ?

To be continued
Bernd
