bake: the third person between Becker and Niemeck could be Hptm. HANS HAUPTMANN, Kommandeur Kradschützenbataillon 55. All from 5.Panzerdivision, received the KC in March 1943.

@bake,

I would agree to joerg and say also Hauptmann Hauptmann ! :)
ritterkreuz.de has a pic of him (only comparisn for me, never saw another one) and it matches I think. Those 5. Pz.Div. award dates are 15.03. (Becker), 14.03. (Niemeck) and 15.03. for Hauptmann. The only other date which allows the conlcusion for a common ceremony is for Oberfeldwebel Ewald Görsch, 15.03.43, 8./Pz.Gren.Rgt. 13. The shoulder boards are very hard to see. The breeches are a strong hint for Hauptmann as leader of the Kradschtz.Btl. IMO (former cavalry man probably).

Hans Hauptmann -last rank Major.
There was a Hauptmann ex 11th Pz Gdr Regt (9th Pz Div)promoted
to Major 1/4/43(18) I believe it to be him,probably wearing his Major
tabs then.

Two RK-winners. One of them maybe general Müller.

Page 22: Under the heading "No _ id 4.jpg is a photo of Günter Jahn.

Page 23: UB RKT XXII jpg is a pic of Josef Dörfel.

Hope this helps. I should be able to id more shortly.

Take care.

It does, as always, Terry, two down ! :D
Gunter Jahn and Josef Dörfel. Johann Biehl has the "name in quote caption" on top of the pics.

Thanks and regards

Hello, Bernd,

On page 39. Listed under bbb.jpg and the same pic is posted on page 171 under Portrait5.jpg.

The pic is that of Oberstleutnant Henning Schönfeld.

There are some more I can identify and will do so as I run across them.

Take care, and thanks.

Hello, Kameraden,

On Page 195, you posted a photo of two SS officers walking side by side, and on 22 Jul 2008, according to the date, and it was taken from a newsreel.

The officer on the right about whom you were inquiring is a pic of Joachim Peiper and, unfortunately, not that of Max Wünsche, as was suggested.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry
