Unidentified Italian Officers at Gariboldi Ritterkreuz Ceremony

Post by AlifRafikKhan » 12 Nov 2017 13:00

5 April 1943: From left to right: Oberstleutnant Gerhard Engel (Adjutant des Heeres und Verbindungsoffizier des Heeres zu Führer und Oberster Befehlshaber der Wehrmacht), Generalfeldmarschall Wilhelm Keitel (Chef des Oberkommando der Wehrmacht), Generalleutnant Rudolf Schmundt (Chefadjutant des Heeres beim Führer und Oberster Befehlshaber der Wehrmacht), Adolf Hitler (Führer und Oberster Befehlshaber der Wehrmacht), unidentified Italian officer, Generale d'Armata Italo Gariboldi (Commander Italian Army in Russia), and another unidentifed Italian officer. The picture was taken by Presse-Hoffmann photographer at the Ritterkreuz award ceremony for Gariboldi, held in Berghof Obersalzberg. Gariboldi already received the radio/telegram news for his award from 1 April 1943.

Does anyone know whom is the two unidentified Italian officers?

The General between AH and Gariboldi is Efisio Marras.

Hi,

I believe the general on the left to be Bruno Malaguti - see these for comparison:

Properly picking up his iron cross.
