Hello, Fangio,

Pic number 1 is a photo of Joachim-Friedrich Huth, Kommodore of Zerstörergeschwader "Horst Wessel".

Pic number 2 is a photo of Oberst Dietrich Hrabak.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry

Hello, Bake,

On Page 262, you posted a pic listed as 04_21_09123a as a "Mystery Lw EL". That is a picture of Generalmajor Alexander Holle and he was not an oakleaf recipient. If you compare that pic with the one of him standing behind General Fiebig on P. 268, you will see that it is the same man. In both pix, the general is wearing the same decorations. No idea as to why someone would show him as being an EL recipient when he was not.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry

That was fast. Many thanks Ruslan.
Two more (and I don't bother anymore).
One of the pics shows Galland but I don't know who's the other officer.

I think with Galland it's Max Ibel, but I am not 100% sure. :? EL holder it's Kurt Bühligen.



Best wishes :)

Well done again Ruslan! It is Ibel with Galland (I compared the photo with another one I have of Ibel).
Many thanks for all your help Ruslan.

Caption said: Schirach, Hoernlein, Rommel and Garski. That's not Rommel for sure, but who is he?
