Hello,

And new Id's, page 61 - unb.jpg it's Harry Schlingmann.

page 129 - Teil 1.jpg (top) He looks like Ernst Sorge to me.

Best wishes :)

Hello, Chris44

The photo on page 56 unk.rkt seems to show an officer, but as far as I know Unfried's highest rank was Sergeant.

Before going to add the newest - fantastic progress btw. :D - here's a last supplement of 2nd round review. Was the Axel/Diedrich Bruns case, but think its solved, see below. Case/story expands through pages 70,71,78.
Diedrich Bruns, IR 16
not Axel Bruns, but Dietrich, too ? , and further comments/statements on page 78
The man shown on page 70 is indeed OTL d.R. Diedrich Bruns, IR 16 / 22. ID ; see detailed Bio with a number of pics on the excellent 22. ID website http://www.historic.de/Militar/Personen/Bruns/Bruns.htm
of note : christian name indeed spelled Diedrich, see German Cross in Gold document.

The man on page 71 (from rk.de) is in fact Dr. Axel Bruns from Art.Rgt. 241 ; last rank Hptm. d.R.
See autograph attached, from a personal collection.

Thanks and regards
Bernd

Hi horatio2,
try again and post it again. I suggest you the following : upsize the photo with any photo software you have and store it on your pc as usual. Go to the test section of the forum. Attach it - don't click "submit", do "preview" first (so you see what will appear, I do this always btw.). Come back here and make a new post.

Best regards
Bernd

All the previous input handled, thanks ! Except those where we have no "is" or "definite" according to the procedure established and working. In particular that's my (remaining) 2nd round confirmation requests, p91-Kuno Hoffmann, p141-Emil Vogler, and p129-Ernst Sorge. Bit of time for further thoughts and input as ususal.

Ludwig Heilmann is on the index.
Identified by Ruslan and Terry. We have to agree I think. I do. Found this identical BA pic in my database, tree in the background, lower size with map cut-off. Clearly matches with all other Heilmann pics (the nose!).

Best regards
Bernd

Wolfgang Jugler
Wasn't treated yet. Done now, was identified by colleague Florian Berger. He is not even mentioned by Scherzer ; probably Krätschmer or von Seemen have him (?) ; don't know if this was a "06.05.1945 Dietrich award" or something completely different. If you have more, please add to this thread, which is a non-reply thread !
SS-Untersturmführer Wolfgang Jugler
