Request for Identification of Generals and Admirals and other persons of the Bundeswehr

Post by docarchiv » 01 Jul 2018 13:42

Hello,
Germany has an army, which is called Bundeswehr. It exist since 1956 and is member of the NATO-Forces. I would like to use this topic to identify soldiers of this army. Many of them were members of Imperial Forces, Reichswehr and Wehrmacht and highly decorated.
Kind regards

I would like to start with some Generals of army and airforces, who I found in a small album I bought on ebay.
Perhaps someone can help to identify the men, some of them holder of the DKiG.
Kind regards

Generalleutnant von Horn is holder of the DKiG (01.12.1943, Generalleutnant, Kommandeur 198. Infanteriedivision), same the unknown general on the previous photographs!

Hello Helmut,
thank you for your reply. I would like him to be Johannes Steinhoff! But I don't think so!

Dear Sir,

The general in post #7 is Jürgen Bennecke. He has the DKiS and the DKiG.
