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

It really does help Terry. Thank you very much for your continuous help.

The pic below was posted on http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com as an unknown Stalingrad RKT. Anyone has any idea of who could this officer be?

Hi everybody!

I think I found out who's the pilot being decorated by Mölders: Erich Schmidt (Flugzeugführer III./JG 53). But just to sure, could someone confirm this?

Besides this, who's this Heer rkt below? (Pic from http://www.cimilitaria.com )
