It is not Heinz Heuer. He was Oberfeldwebel, but the pic doesn´t show an Oberfeldwebel.

Sleipnir: Your photo shows definitely WILLI HOPFE (not Heuer), at least he was Oberfähnrich. I have this photo and two others in my own collection

Someone from Kharkov: Your glider pilot with the KC was WILHELM FULDA.

@Sleipnir
Yes, Willi Hopfe . Schnelle Abt. 123 , with Demjansk Schild. Have seen this one with signature in a collection, too.

btw, didn't we all agree to provide a source to the photographs ?
So, Sleipnir and Someone from Kharkov , please do so next. :idea: :)

Two unknown RK holders: :)

2921038 Rolf Thomsen with unknown luftwaffe RK holder?
Martin Möbus / AHF id
Additional reflection : doesn't it show the Thomsen and the Möbus brothers ? They really look like brothers.
Rolf Thomsen, KC - and ...??
Martin Möbus, KC - and ...??
Is it correct they both had brothers in service with the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine respectively ?
2802263 Adolf Seitz with unknown RK general?
