About picture posted by DocArchiv named foto 298 and showing several RKT from LW,
I confirm 4th officer from left is Robert Olejnik, 4th officer from right is Oskar Bauer.
First guy from right is Walter Schalles and I'm wondering whether 3rd guy from left might not be Herbert Kaminski

Hello

About page 517, foto 369 : for me this is not Herbert Kriening but Franz Wipfler.

As far as I can see, there are often confusions about both soldiers.
Would anybody be able to post pictures from Wipfler and Kriening to stop this mismatch ?

Not Hermann Staiger, but Wilhelm-Ferdinand Galland.

Hello Denis

This photo below (Wipfler or Kriening) has appeared on different websites described sometime as Wipfler and sometime as Kriening. I believe that the man on page 517 is Kriening, because other images of Wipfler (see the example below - source Scherzer) are not the same.

Yes, thank you, I hurried. Too early for Staiger, this is Göring's visit in December 1941 after which Galland up to RLM and Schöpfel succeeded him. :wink:

18- Max Wippermann (LW) to be confirmed

It is Herbert Wittmann, not Wippermann.

After long time I found my old hard disk with some photos on it. I suppose that all these pics were posted here already, but it would take too much time to check more than 500 pages...
