This one is strange. Clip_3.jpg (again) - not Franz Doff !?
With Schweppenburg we are in the WEST. That would rule out Doff (GJR 98), too.

Now I was going through all the pages of this thread again I can state that this id (Doff) would have been the only mistake ever of the ingenious HERBERT . R.I.P. good man. Watching us ? Let's try this id for him.

Best regards
Bernd

Page 171 unknown2 isnt a real Knightscross winner, he is a post war imposter, hence all the awards etc. His real name is Rudi Wolfmüller.

Hello, John and others,

Indeed the depicted general with Joseph Turanec is General Friedrich Kirchner.

Take care.
