robertmoore wrote: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.
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 )

Can anyone ID this Heer Generalleutnant a. D.? The name appears to be Rhein but the only ID for that name with search brought up a decidedly different face. Thanks.

Hi Joe!
Yes, nice pic of Generalleutnant Karl Ludwig Rhein (RK: 06.03.1942 as Kommandeur Infanterie Regiment 439 / 134.InfDiv).

Best,
