The index is updated. All done according to your latest ids and comments, thanks Alif, Terry, Chris and Ruslan ! :D
Quite a lot of entries on the no id list crossed out. Georg "Geo" Müller was requested three times (pp. 229, 247, 276) with the Goebbels/Sewastopol/BA pic.
The page 129 series is reduced to one question - Teil 3, top.
Ruslan,
Sorge, Sigel, and Heller done. Sorge 100%, Sigel also 100% IMO - we have Hanns Heise pics for comparisn, no match, and the long small awards clasp of Sigel is specific, too, don't think that Heise ever showed this "long version".
I have another Heller pic in my database and the match is 95% from my point of view.


Not identified (last round)

RE: confirmation list : Gerhard Voigt
The one attached just found on the current running mil321 auction
http://www.militaria321.com/auktion/553 ... 1%21%21%21
Though a Prof. Graf card "only", maybe of help to confirm. The "Spange" matches. No final clue in general.

All added and index updated, thanks chris44 and George ! Phil, nice "Brandenburger" pic ! Wandrey surely presented by the Korps commander Felmy (Jäg.Rgt. 1 "BR" assigned to LXVIII. (68.) AK during this time period).

Here is the 2nd round review for the pages 181 - 210 :

Added to the No id list - possibly doubles, but still no id / or not yet treated :
page 182 : 50715550.jpg , not Herbert Berger, "FHH"
page 208 : SN852543b.jpg - Mannschaftsdienstgrad/Enlisted Man, with DKiG, and Verdienstauszeichnung für Ostvölker (?)

From the group of the all-time most requested :
page 183 :001(epier.com).jpg
page 184 : s3.jpg
page 191 : 2.jpg , 1.jpg (again) , since long time unsolved requests by our CiC Marcus

2nd round review :

page 196 : 56789.jpg - Franz Weller ?
status quo of ids / statements / discussion is : Utz in center , Franz Weller to his right
We had a decent round about Hubert Lanz plus many pics. Isn't the man in the center Lanz ? What about Weller ?


page 209 : 3230360.jpg
first id was Heinz-Jürgen Ißbrücker ; objection was : most probably No, because the reverse text says (and Ißbrücker wasn't KIA) :
"Eine kleine Erinnerung,
an meinen lieben Bräutigam,
deine Helga,
gefallen am 2. Aug 1943"

[Helga Speth, Leer/Ostfriesland]

2nd round review : the Michael Fischer / Willi Hägele case

page 197 :86c1_1.jpg
left : Michael Fischer , id'ed - right : Willi Hägele , id'ed, but in fact Yes ?

There are a number of Flak photos, award ceremonies, too. A part of them with Fischer and Hägele (?) - I'm a bit confused and not convinced, therefore I ask again.
Michael Fischer is on the index with two clear (undisputed) ids : pp. 83 , 157
Willi Hägele is on the index with one clear id by Herbert, R.I.P. : page 138

Thanks in advance for a clear Yes on Fischer, and on Hägele. And/or for a clear correction.


Best regards
Bernd

Hi,
I don’t know if this is the right place, but here we GO: can someone help me to identify this Generalmajor and Eichelaubträger.

Thanks in advance,

Douglas.

But are you sure about his ID?
Looks like a different guy from here: http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de/index_sea ... hword=hohn
