Hi Phil.

the RKT next to Speidel ist Josef Graßmann (see page 245)

the "Hauptmann with RKT" ist Erich Plettner (see page 259)

Hi all,

the Courland Pz RK = Jürgen Gauß makes sense, as it obviously was an "Kampfgruppe" that was surrendered there, so you have an Grenadier in the Panzer turret !

Still open for discussion are the 4.. turret numbers, maybe the II./PR 29 was inofficially renamed I./PR 29 because the I. Abteilung obviously was not about to return to the Division !?

The same thing happened with III./Pz.Rgt. 36, in September 1944 the Abteilung was named II. Abteilung...

I take it there was and is no objection to this group pic (bit more detailed caption added by me) :
Four RKT of II./KG 30 (KCs for Norway [attack on England] and France), left to right : Werner Baumbach, Lt. Flugzeugführer i.d. 5./KG 30 - Claus Hinkelbein, Hptm. Kdr. II./KG 30 - Franz Wieting, Olt. Staffelkapitän 6./KG 30 - Willi Schultz, Fw. Flugzeugführer i.d. 6./KG 30


Added to the index :
Hans Wolff, Aufkl.Stff 1.(F)/124
that is, this one can be crossed out, as it is definitely not him :
Kurt Tanzer (confirmations list, old)


Best regards
Bernd

Ruslan,

in fact, it is Stüdemann !
page 106 (better pic) : Gerhard Stüdemann
(page 42 captioned, too)

See autograph attached for comparisn and completion. [source: from a personal collection]

As it was said to be Zöllner (and is on the index as one of the various Zöllner pics) - the man to the right is Zöllner in fact (or wrong, too) ?
