one clear and two hm, thanks
I have captioned Horst Müller, II./KG 76, a double pic.
Löwe I wanted to keep in reserve, not 100% about that, re: Hein I'm not convinced and would like to re-ask.
The Nicolussi-Leck / Hein correction :

The man on the pic in question is wearing a HJ badge. None of the three Hein pics we have already shows that badge. ?? . Also, doesn't the (sloppy) cap style speak for Nicolussi-Leck ? So, hmm, are you 100% ? Do others confirm Hein ?
The Erich Löwe case :
can nearly drive one mad - or it is very much clear. Löwe was presented to be Löwe for sure by Elwyn (Federl book)
and was identified to be Löwe, too, indeed
pic in question : http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 12#p515312
later, 2x Löwe : http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 4#p1278044
and one more time (see my follow-up post, too) : http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 4#p1266524
Elwyn once said about the pic in question :
Well, is in a single pic of the Löwe pics NOT Löwe ?I suspect what you posted as Löwe was not him but Mj Richard Laukat, Kdr II/ArtRgt 103/ 4Pz. He resembled Löwe but Löwe was just a little heavier.
My pic is Löwe -- it comes from Christian Federl's "Die Ritterkreuzträger der Deutsche Panzerdivisionen" and I have found it to be totally accurate so far. I had your pic down as Löwe too initially from, I think, a French website that talked about 23rd Pz quite a bit. But I noticed the difference and subsequently found one caption that said your pic is Laukat. I will keep an eye out. Fortunately 4Pz was probably the most well photographed and documented Pz Div.
And, has someone LAUKAT for comparisn ?
PS: just seen the other ids, great ! My request about Löwe needed too much time.
