Hello, again, Bernd,

A definite confirmation of the award of the KC to Friedrich Memmert presented to him from the hand of General Georg Jauer. I have a pic of the award ceremony in which Mr. Memmert specifically identified the General shown presenting him with the Knight's Cross. Thought I would pass that on to you.

Concerning Ewald Quest and my id'ing him as that of Heinz Korn, I was in error. That picture is indeed of Ewald Quest. Sorry for the mistake on that, as I was under the misleading impression that Heinz Korn was the only member of the RAD to be awarded the Knight's Cross. I apologize to you and others for that.

Thank you.

Take care.

Terry

Hi Terry,

fine, all done what's clear. Of note : I've moved the separate Quest thread to this forum - the other RAD personnel aspect wasn't answered ever. Ewald Quest (KC Flak) visits RAD-Flak

Terry, and all,

Yes, and spot on, out of the few discussions - this or that general - , you've brought it to the right track what still seems to be an irritating and not finally answerd CASE indeed.
The Kurt von der Chevallerie / Herbert Loch / another general ? case.

It's about the page 4 pic, Yes (confirmations list) : Kurt von der Chevallerie

I've two arguments right now : facial features don't match ; not a real match with the Kurt von der Chevallerie photo I have stored as the standard one (in front of the "curtain"), see attachment (converted to paint only this one due to some weired technical reasons).

What makes it a case, is that he is said to be Kurt von der Chevallerie and part of a 4 men EL ceremony at Rastenburg ; see here, from the "Awards personally bestowed by Hitler sticky" - with the full pic (with undoubtedly Gollnick, Wiese and Schlemmer) : http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 78#p420378

The pic attached allows the conclusion IMO that he was wearing a monocle (left eye!).

Maybe this was solved in the meantime over in the generals id ??

regards
Bernd :roll:

The LW officer at the immediate left in the second pic is Hartmann Grasser. The other does not come to mind.
Thanks a lot Terry!

Great! Many thanks joerg!

Two pics from Grossdeutschland. I think the one on the second pic is the same officer as on the left of the first pic right?
