Hi Terry,

Biblio Verlag has a very good pic of Michael Fischer and he had a very thin face. In any case I have pic of Fischer's RKV with him in just tunic, standling next to Haegele. Award date was 08.04.43 so there really shouldn't be that much snow.

However, I agree that it really looks like Reimann. But here if Reimann, he was not as a general. That would bring us back to before 20 Apr 41. Flak Rgt 8 was his only front line appointment. Only one RKT from FlakRgt 8, Dieter Oster... not quite him.

Cheers
Freiherr

Hello, Bake and others,

On Page 166, you posted a pic of a RK ceremony depicting two Luftwaffe officers. They are the recipient: Erwin Diekwisch and the awarding officer is General Alfred Keller.

I don't think this was ever identified, but if so, please excuse the duplication.

Take care.

Terry

Hello, Mr. Rob Romero,

On Page 163, you posted a pic listed as 467c_12.jpg which depicts a Luftwaffe standing by an automobile. The one below depicts the same person. That man is Emil Baddorek.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry

Hello, again, Bake,

I forgot to mention the numbering beneath that pic of Diekwisch and Keller. It is 4507_1_RK.jpg.

Hope this helps.

Hello, Bernd,

Just saw your post. I think I can help you with a couple of these.

RTK 8, I will confirm as being Hogrebe. I thought this one had already been identified for certain.

Källner, yes.

However, for the one you listed as "Heinrich_maybe" is Kurt Student.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry

Hello, Bernd,

You are asking for confirmation of the debate of the pic posted on Page 30 as being either Siegfried Schnell or Joachim Müncheberg.

Without a doubt that is a Rohr photograph of Joachim Müncheberg, not Siegfried Schnell.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Terry !
So, still open the one presented by Källner. Student, Yes, the one in opposite probably not a RKT (other ceremony?). Anyone with a confirmation for Wilhelm Berg ?

Best regards
Bernd
