Hello, All,

On PP 141, there are two pix of the same man posted. Under unk rkt_2 jpg and the other one as well, are pix of Oberst Johannes Kümmel.

Not sure it was subsequently identified.

Take care.

Terry

Hello, again,

I don´t know if this soldier was identified, but on PP 143, the color shot listed as kal. rittm_07.jpg is Otto Brakat.


Hope this helps.

Terry

Hi Elwyn,

I was going through this one when it had appr. 130 pages - the imagination to do it once again is a bit scaring.. :) But I'll go for that. Good reasons for it. Both for newcomers and for oldtimers.
Instead of an award (thanks for that 8-) ) your help and feedback is much appreciated if questions arise.

This will take some time of course. After the first steps have a look on page 1 please and don't hesitate to comment on the technique (I've got an idea and I have to see also how it works).

Thanks and regards
Bernd

Index done up to page 5 , except the large series on page 3.
I will link directly to the post = pic. If there are more pics attached I try to give the captions and/or additional info to know which pic is meant. Doing that no page numbers are needed. Directed to the post the user can look on this page(s) for further info eventually provided and can follow the discussions which took place if interested.

Some questions already ! Some cases might have been treated in the meantime but I ask due to speed reasons and to have a further re-check perhaps.

Hi Bernd,

- v Canstein was not our mystery man in grey Stug wrap. I caught him with his British captors
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 220#400642

- RK not yet identified as far as I can remember


Hi Terry,

Great ID on Kümmel

To me "Yes" - if there are no objections I will list them like that.

This one has been identified (later) as Johannes Schulz
[page 2] : http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 64#p279164

Could be the question if
Johannes Schulz, Major, Kdr. I./IR 49 , 06.10.1941
or (to rule out finally)
Dr. Johannes Schulz. Oberst, Kdr. PGR 10, 19.09.1943

if there is no objection :
the IR 49 / 28. ID Schulz with the typical shoulder board cover of 1941 (strongly in use by that division).

Hello, All,

On PP 169, there is a photo listed as unk 13.jpg and has not been identified to my knowledge. However, if I inadvertently overlooked that fact, I apologize.

That is a photograph of Oberstleutnant Gustav-Albrecht Schmidt-Ott.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry
