Terry,

page 17 : Erich Bansen , s.Pz.Jäg.Abt. 519 , was identified.
If I recall correctly there was confusion with a similar pic, a pic of him again probably, which wasn't identified clearly. We will find again this incident if so.

page 7 : Rolf Tittel wasn't confirmed finally I think.
There was some doubt due to his rank. His last rank was Leutnant d.R.

Thanks, Bernd

Now, Ste, page 32, which appears to be more tricky !

01.jpg = Karl-Lothar Schulz , no objection

The (Probably) Großdeutschland's RKT series :

RKT (12) was identified as Willy Langkeit. I'm pretty sure it's him.

but ?? :
RKT (10) was said to be Wilhelm Berg
RKT (8) - Heinrich Hogrebe
RKT (7) - Wilhelm Berg again maybe


The Brösamle / Plickat case :
the first pic on page 32 - broesamle.jpg - is indeed Karl Brösamle ? Or Fritz Plickat ?
next :
bscap026.jpg on page 31 :
Karl Brösamle ? Or another id : San.-Uffz Willy Pieper ?

Thanks a lot bake for the id, and Ingo for the confirmation. That was an easy one but my memory fails from time to time.
What about this one from Heer? Same site.

No, Bake, the Heer NCO above is Fuchs. I think the last photo posted shows Peter-Paul Breu.

Hello!
I found the first pic on a site about the HJ division,in a section about the Pioner Abteilung.So I think that this Heer officer could be Hptm Otto Toll, RK on 10.6.41 as Leutnant and Zugführer Pioner Batalion 200 and killed in action in Normandy exactly 3 years after.
Could someone confirm?

I assume Toll was subsequently a member of HJ's Pi Abt? Veit Scherzer's CD ROM has a pic of him. Facial features are consistent with what we see here except the cleft of the chin.

Hello, Fangio and other interested parties,

On PP 73, there is listed a formal portrait photograph listed as unk. RKT-1 (Weinsoldner Peter. jpg, etc)

That is a photo of Richard Schwamberger. The same pic his widow sent to me.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry
