The man to the right is wearing a Destroyer Badge and a Minesweeper Badge. The groom appears to be wearing a Narvik Shield. Is the RKT a Destroyer man?

mmmm... the first man to the RKT's right is also wearing a Minesweeper Badge. Unfortunately we can´t see which badge the RKT is wearing. Maybe also a Minesweeper Badge or a Destroyer Badge. The site where I took the pic from is in russian so I can`t add any further info about it. He doesn't seem to wear the Narvik Shield. :? Who could he be?

The central officer is the later General Max Schrank. Here is another photo from the same ceremony, also from e-bay. I hope it helps the identification.

On further digging, I thing the new Gebirgsjager RKT is Franz Pöschl, RKT 23.02.1944 as Hptm., Kdr. 1./Geb.Jäg.Rgt. 100

Could someone identify this unknown Luftwaffe NCO Rkt and DKiG recipient? I take it he is posing with his crew. All are NCO's.
