page 30 : seidel-heinrich_notquite.jpg - Heinrich Seidel, Olt IR 422 ? is indeed Dr. Heinrich Seidel ; see autograph attached for confirmation [source: militaria321.com]
The second pic there, captioned seidel_heinrich.jpg (from rk.de) seems to be another man (?).

page 40 : Rudolf Otto - 2x ?? - both pics show Rudolf Otto

page 62 : RK2.jpg is Rudolf Koppe , Kdr. Pz.Aufkl.Abt. 23

Well done Miocid. Together with Dessloch, the two must be the two most grumpy looking generals of the Wehrmacht. Heim should consider himself lucky. He could be in Stalingrad instead.

Cheers

Pg. 105 pic "Biblio 8.jpg" looks to me like Waldemar Teige but this photo does not match up to any that I have seen of his award ceremony. Some of the guys standing next to him do not appear to be his crew members that are in the other pics I have ....probably just taken at a different part of the ceremony

Pg. 121 pic "73_1_ba.jpg" is Friedrich-August Schack according to the description of the same pic on another page

Pg. 76, 84, 131 and 151 is the same pic. On 74 it is named "whoarethey1.jpg" and on 84 and 131 it is labeled as Johannes Baasch and on pg. 151 it is "who is RK.jpg". On the back of the photo I have the RK winner is named as Karl Baxmann. Both look close to me.....

Pg. 175 pics "Fall1.JPG" and "Fall2.JPG" is Josef Vernhold with General Siegfried Henrici

Pg. 193 pic "2_6.jpeg" is for sure Heinrich Becker and Gerhard Niemeck

Pg. 193 pic "c790_1.jpg" is Albert Spieth

Pg. 83 pic "unk 4 RKT.jpg" and pg. 197 pic "86c1_1.jpg" is Michael Fischer with the newly awarded RK

Pg. 203 pic "osexcvolk54.jpg" is Peter-Paul Breu

Pg. 209 pic "5016_1.jpg" is Ernst-Wilhelm Ihrig

Pg. 210 pics "16098-37.jpg" is Christian Lotze

Pg. 213 pic "3234590.jpg" is Christian Lotze as well

I'm sorry if this image from Bundesarchiv-Wikipedia is a repost, but I'm not remember if anyone has posted this unidentified panzer officer in this thread...
