Gregg, are you sure about Hans Seidemann ?

Did he alter from a pilot in relatively good shape to a "round man" ?

- Page 66: Major Walter FROMM (10.JPG).
there are now different ids for this one 10.jpg

It was requested again later by Ingo and was identified by Terry much later : Ernst Gürke

For comparisn here we have Ernst Gürke for sure - http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 5#p1260475

After Terry's late id of Gürke, of whom you now say it is Walter Fromm, I said :
By chance I found a reference photo (Hoffmann card) [source: militaria321.com].
Viewing this Hoffmann pic I had doubts first. But the more I look, the eye-browes, the nose..
So, hopefully this is useful to rule out doubts and to have a 100% confirmation. And a nice pic ! :)

Best regards
Bernd
No reply back then. Doesn't sound that convinced and comfortable, or ?

Additional material : This Flak group pic with Gürke said to be in the middle (belongs to a number of special requests/issues I have on hold)

Now, what do you all think ?

The INDEX mode has been changed to a "update per date" mode, because the INDEX is ready. :P

There are six parts now. With the expansion the index is prepared for the next 100 pages or even for 7000+ names. A new last part is for the many photo/id threads outside this sticky which I will gather all bit by bit.

I have a few pics left out from the requests with intention. These are special cases or issues which will be re-asked one by one next. There surely are a few omissions and several double postings not yet captioned.
Don't forget the unidentified section, dear colleagues. Don't hesitate to point to an error on the index and if it's a doubt only.

Thanks and regards
Bernd

Dear Bernd,

Thanks for your words. You're very kind. I got a lot of historical information on this page and I think it is my duty to help in any way possible. In this case I am very interested in identifying general Germans, and especially their medals.

Anyway, I will try to answer your questions.

A) Model and Zorn on the back seat (my fault!!!). I do not know who is the man on the front seat.

B) Seidemann. Well...I´m sure 100%. And, yes he looks a very old man for your age.

C) Walter Fromm. Why I think this officer is Fromm? Very simple. Three reasons: his hair and his face, his ribbon bar and it what appears to be a spanienkreuz in his right pocket (see the pic to compare).

Image


By the way, I send you a pic (Bundeswehrarchiv) of General der Infanterie Schack as Kommandeur der 272. Infanterie-Division (with the arm raised) with Rommel on the Atlantikwall (date: 1944)

Image

At last, here you have a new IDs:

Page 131: Generalleutnant Heinrich GREINER (Kluge and who); Generalmajor der Luftwaffe Carl-August SCHUMACHER (Svg1.JPG).
Page 132: Generalmajor der Luftwaffe Carl-August SCHUMACHER (scan008.jpg...the same pic, too much better quality).
Page 134: Generaladmiral Otto SCHNIEWIND and Korvettenkapitän Kalus FELDT on the back seat (Schniewindt.JPG).
Page 153: Generalleutnant Theodor Freiherr von WREDE (unkngen3.jpg).
Page 188: GÖRING, WILKE, GRAUTING and Generaloberst der Luftwaffe Bruno LOERZER (IMAGE0023.JPG ).

My best regards,

Gregg.

I think the W-SS officer is Karl Ullrich.
