2nd round review is done up to page 133.

Resulting from detecting double pics, final understanding of pics shown, and handling former ids, these should be clarified (captioned and index) :
Josef Graßmann (ceremony)
and once again in this page 133 series : Unknown RKT.jpg and RKT2.jpg and Heer.jpg
Emil Pross , same pic on page 148
Johannes Baasch , last one crossed out from the questions ; for all Baasch versions see the index

New entry and re-entry :
page 126 : Capturar_3 and_4.jpg
Suggested with Model is Werner Ostendorff.

Capturar_3 corresponds with the same page 27 index pic Erich Buschenhagen , with Rudel
and the discussion freiherr and Terry were involved ; there was an agreement that this has to be corrected.
Not Buschenhagen, but Maximilian de Angelis. Id'ed additionally : to the left : Eugen-Heinrich Bleyer.

Correct understanding ? Any objection to do this correction ?

There was irritation about page 132 : Richard Taubert indeed ?

The Ellmer and Klimek, KG 27 award ceremony appears several times in different variants and should be to solve easily. A confirmation for this one ?
page 132 : 83_1.jpg - with Helmut Klimek, KG 27

Hello, Bake,

Your picture looks like an award to Rudi Müller and the general in the center is General Hans-Jürgen Stumpff. Can´t be absolutely certain, but it looks like them.

Take care.

Hello, Bake,

After doing some research, I can confirm the identities of the two KC holders in your pic. They are indeed of Oberfeldwebel Rudi Müller and General Hans-Jürgen Stumpff.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

The new KC holder left of HELBIG looks like Oberfeldwebel OTTO LEUPERT.

Page 260: The general with GenOb. VIETINGHOFF and identified as Georg STUMME, I believe is Ernst DEHNER.

Page 264: The general captured by brittish troops I believe is Ferdinand HEIM.
