Hi John,

Brilliant work! Thanks. I agree Identify1 and Identify2 are Helmut Bruck, GrKmdr I/StukaG77. That would make the other RKT Georg Jakob, GrKmdr III/StukaG77.

Cheers

I don't think your man is Trautloft. In 'Horrido' Constable & Tolliver refer to him as being very tall man ('a moose of a man' they said) which this RK doesn't seem to be. I enclose a shot of Trautloft for comparison.

Thanks for the good work, John and Paul.

I think you are right, John. I have a small pic of Galland, Streib and Trautloft. Trautloft was about half a head taller than Streib. Another pic of Streib showed him to be as tall as Sayn Wittgenstein. And Sayn Wittgenstein was definitely on the tall side.
