Hi, Peter,

My opinion it's definitely Klaus Mietusch.

Hello, Peter,

I will only add my confirmation to the fact that on page 130, the two pix of the fighter pilot listed, is indeed those of Klaus Mietusch of JG-26 "Schlageter".

Take care, and hope this helps.

Terry

Hello, again, Peter,

I just noticed that I had listed page 130 for the location of those two pix of Klaus Mietusch. I meant page 230 and I just got in from a long trip and I guess I am more tired than I thought.

Please excuse the oversight.

Take care and I hope all those on this list and you especially had a wonderful Christmas.

Terry

To Someone from Kharkov:
Thanks for your identification Otto Weidhofer / Robert Vogel.
Sure that the person with the glasses is Otto Weidhofer?
I found another pic of WILHELM OKRENT, looks that this is the same person:
clarified that this is Otto Weidhofer / AHF id

To joerg

Yes, I'm sure. I do agree that these two men are similar to each other, but identification about Otto Weidhofer took place at that forum already.
