Hello,

Immediately before Obst Oppeln-Bronowski (#536) looks a little like Obst Martin Strahammer (#545). Bake labeled him as X. Immediately after was without a doubt Hptm Hubert Mickley (#540). Bake labeled him as Y.

The two generals are difficult. Candidates are Gen von Tippelskirch (#539), Gen Karl Hilpert (#542) and GenMj Heinrich Nickel (#543)

Cheers
Freiherr

hello, Freiherr

According with the pic posted by Herbert ( Sept 07,2004)

Gen. Nickel is on the pic with Brux and Simons ( after 11/08/44)
So we have to eliminate Gen.Major H.Nickel.



Regards.

If you look on Herbert's pic, the unknown EL have a
Edelweiss on his sleeve.

Another question

Denis did you see a recipient hide by Hitler on this pic ?
I'm not sure. Ceremony 28/08/43.

Hello bake

Very interesting finding (and good eyes) !! I didn't notice that arm patch. However, I would not say this is an Edelweiss but rather a Jäger patch.
Given that the information about the other people attending this ceremony :

After 11/08/44, location unknown
WH ceremony
From left to right :
- Gen.Major Heinrich Nickel (543. EL)
- Obst. Albert Brux (504. EL)
- unidentified soldier
- Oblt. d.R. Gerhard Simons (547. EL)

This soldier (obviously a WH one) should be an officer between the rank of Oberst and Oberleutnant and assigned to a Jäger unit.
In my opinion, this can be Major Wilhelm von Salisch (533. EL).

There are few other possibilities :
Hptm. Hilt (386. EL)
Lt. d.R. Schneider (389. EL)
Ofw. Johann Schwerdfeger (474. EL)
Obst. Schury (592. EL)
Obst. Kretschmar (600. EL)
Obst. Weller (626. EL)
Stfw. Reuter (633. EL)
but most have a bestowal date which is too early or too late.

Thank you
Denis

No, I didn't notice that. There is sseemingly somebody after Langesee. For this one, we need to have a new photo taken from a different angle to identify the soldier.
Good catch !
Thanks
