Hello, Bake,

On page 213, you ask for id´s of two pix of submariner being decorated with the KC.

Those are pix of Reinhard Hardegen.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Hello Terry

I don't think the two on page 213 are Reinhard Hardegen. See attached.

Thanks Terry, done all, except (so far)
Reinhard Hardegen ; I agree to John
Heinz-Jürgen Issbrücker : just the simple way : is this id 100% ?
what's irritating me is the text on the reverse : "Eine kleine Erinnerung / an meinen / lieben Bräutigam / deine Helga // gefallen am 2. Aug 1943 " - KIA Aug 2nd 43
Issbrücker died 1983 ; the other text on the reverse has the home for "Helga" Speth -> Leer/Ostfriesland ; Issbrücker came from (near) Suhl / Thüringen.

regards, Bernd

Hello, Bernd and John,

I will double check on those in question, but I will verify and get back to you. If I have made an error, I will correct it.

Take care, and will get back with you both.

Hello, Someone from Kharkov,

Of the two pix you posted, the second one listed as RKwinner2.jpg is a photo of Generalmajor Max Schrank.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Hello, Bernd,

You ask for the id of the officer shown with General Speidel on page 66. That is Josef "Sepp" Grassmann.

Hope this helps.

Take care and I will be in touch about the other two in question. I agree. They are not the officers I had so indicated.

Hello, Bernd,

I will confirm that the officer inspecting members of the Fallschirmtruppen is indeed Generaloberst Kurt Student. He is listed on Page 71 as Fj.photo. 128jpg.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
