Hi Ian,

Fantastic pictures. I am sure you meant Anton Grasser, Kmdr 119 IR/25 Inf Div shaking hands with Böhme. (There must be some future RKTs and Generals in this line up!!) as Grasser was the first RKT of 25 Inf Div.

In the pic Boehme was installing a memorial for von Speck, his predesessor as Kmdr XVIII Geb Corp, the second general from left was von Löper, Kdr. 83. Div. von Löper is not easy to spot as he didn't really look much like the standard studio portrait we have. Fortunately I have a pic of him with von Stauffenberg that had exactly the same profile.

Cheers
freiherr

Thanks Freiherr and Gareth. Yes You'll have to forgive me for a few typos or other errors. The titles on these pics were typed well over 20 years ago and I'm posting them without checking. I'm trying to select the ones which show as much facial and uniform detail as possible.
I'll put some more up later.
Best
Ian

In the pic 'Böhme & Terboven 1.jpg' I believe that's Karl von Le Suire to the left of Terboven.

Direct hit, dear Gareth! The scar is pathbreaking.

BTW: right spelling "von Le Suire"

Really GREAT photos. These don't look "propagandistic" at all which makes them far better than average "official" photos.

One question: what was von Le Suire doing in Finland in 1943 (whwn the photo was dated)? He was Chief of Staff of Gebirgskorps Norwegen until 16.7.1942 but what did he do there after that? Did he possibly work in Geb.-AOK 20?

Another question: where do you see scars there? I can see only normal "wrinkles" in this mentioned photo.

(As confused as nearly always...) :?

By scar I think he means 'dimple chin'.

In regard to why he was there, Who knows? I've seen positively I.D.'d pictures of generals & admirals at times & locations they have truely no link with. One of my most confounding ones was a picture of Adm. Richard Förster with a Japanese Admiral during the war inspecting a globe. Foerster was retired in 36!
Either the date is wronh, the location was wrong, of he was simply detached for information.

Further to that, I believe the Officer to Terboven's right may be Matthias Kräutler.

A good friend of mine has a photo album which includes a series of photos of GFM List visiting North Norway and he certainly had no command function in Scandinavia.
I agree with Gareth, that certainly does look like Kräutler.



Ian

Excellent historically significant photos, thankyou very much indeed for taking the time and effort to share them. We truly appreciate it.

Yup, that's pretty much what we found out. We knew he wasn't simply on a sightseeing tour of the beautiful fjords ;-)
