Hello, All,

On PP 78, listed under the name of Hain, Horst_jpg as a comparison with the previous photo of Horst Hain, the picture is in fact, that of Oberleutnant der Reserve Dr. Johannes Keck.

Hope this helps.

Hello, again,

On PP 55, there is a pic listed as kc_winner_photo(Larry L.) jpg.

That is a photograph of Leutnant Rudolf Nacke. He won his KC as a Stabsfeldwebel and pilot with KG-76 on 23 Jul 1941.

Hope this helps.

Elwyn,
thanks, Schulz, Bausch and Ehle on the index already.

Ingo,
thanks, quick and not less than three ! Indexed.

Terry,
great job ! If you would have a look also on the questions I post from time to time it would be a big help, too.

Guys, I see, with your help the index will get an interesting job and a success. :D

Up to page 25 so far, I've seen dozens of unidentified persons. Many more requests to come !

Best regards
Bernd

On PP 86, listed under 21055242.jpg is a pic in which you had expressed interest.

Not sure it was identified, but it is a pic of Robert Berger.
Thanks a lot for that one Terry and also for the positive id of Rudolf Knacke.

Best,

FANGIO

Hello, Bernd,

Many thanks for your kind words. I do my best and I enjoy this list very much. I will continue to go through what has been posted and I am sure I will find others that require some sort of id or interpretation.

I will pay particularly close attention to your questions, and if you have any of me, please ask.

Thanks, again, and take care.

Terry

Hello, All,

On page 1, a large color photo listed as UB Ritterkreuzträger 11.jpg.

That is a picture of Peter Eil.

His granddaughter sent me a signed pic of the man.

Hope this helps.

The previous history of this case was on page 25. Keck pic posted for id. See the follow-up post of Elwyn with Horst Hain for comparisn and the hint on 23.PD
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 42#p434742

So, to fix it finally : the bigger pic = Keck , the smaller one = Hain
both of the highly decorated Pz.AA 23

Thanks for clearing this, Terry, and catching Keck !

Bake, your man is Wegener. He was not a tall man and this was an exact match of the position of his medals on his breast pocket.

And Bake, the general with Brändle was Kurt Wolff. Starting 1943(??) they could wear trousers without the general's stripes.
