Hi Roger,

No, it is Johannes Bruhn, the later Generalmajor. KC as Oberst and Artillerie-Kommandeur 149, 20.12.1943. The ids and the index should be accurate with regard to the christian names, too.

regards, Bernd

So this photo needs to be removed from list of unknown KC holders.

Now about ritterk1.jpg by freiherr, page 80.
It's Kurt Schönfeld.

Fangio

Your picture 48.jpg on page 25 which I mistakenly identified at Mikosch, is probably Günther Kratsch.

@all,
I've done the latest with regard to captions and the index. John, Yes, Kurt Walter was on my files already, matches with the other pic of him (should be the same [PK series possibly] occasion).

@Gregg,
as I'm on a 2nd round from the start to pick those photos and cases not yet asked I found the first one - Eugen Ott.
