What is the small emblem below the Close Combat Clasp worn by Heinrich Wiese in the image at the bottom of page 451? It seems to be a man on a horse and appears in a number of portraits.

Sorry to bother again, what I was wondering if you know the holders of these awards:

Keitel's or Jodl?
Any help is appreciated.
If the choice is "Keitel or Jodl", so it's Keitel. Jodl has not reached the rank of Generalfeldmarschall.

It's not oakleaves, but Gebirgsjäger's Edelweiss. And Radfahr-Abt. 54 was the unit of 1. Gebirgs-Division.

Hi,

2) Foto 116: Generalleutnant Dr. med. dent. Walter ASSMANN.
