I think the unknown DKIG
between Krink and Veth
could be
Leutnant Alexander Rudloff
DKIG awarddate unknown
stated in Scherzer with date 1.1.1945 (Veröffentlichung im Luftwaffenverordnungsblatt)

Another picture of Heinrich Neumann. He saved hundreds of wounded and sick German troops at Yukhnov in early 1942 while on the staff of "Luftwaffe-Gruppe Meindl". Neumann is shown here as Stabsarzt and wears the cloth version of the Iron Cross 1st class and the Fallschirmschützen-Abzeichen sewn on his fliegerbluse. This is rarely seen in wartime photographs!
