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,

Ooops! I thought Ingo had identified the Luftwaffe recon pilot. Sorry.

Anyways, here's one more unknown rkt, this time from the Kriegsmarine. Who's he?

Thanks once again Ingo.
So, could the other officer be Mütherich? I don't have a pic right now to compare but I think he won the RK on the same date as Pöhs.

Best,

FANGIO
