One "case" only - Schneckenburger - but should be solved and clarified.

The small "bsb" photo (Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Heinrich Hoffmann collection) is Rudolf Konrad !?
See the argumentation by miocid on page 218.

Best regards

Ruslan, thanks, corrected !

I have handled another old story finally. Crossed out from the confirmation list - photo on page 56 - and placed on the index the better quality BA photo on page 226 :
"GD" festive hour [Einrücken Kriegsfreiwilliger] on a market place, with : Hans Sachs - Heinz Maaz
This was almost 100%, there was no objection. It is Maaz after all.

/ Bernd

Here is the 2nd round review for the pages 241 - current page.

One id just re-asked : page 241 : Marine.jpg - Guggenberger ?

Two re-asked for confirmation / objections :
Gerhard Walther, Kdr II./SG 4
Kurt Ubben - Kurt Pflugbeil

There are two open cases with different ids / opinions :

page 262 : Bild 133.jpg - Hans Bayer ?
my objection was :
Hans Bayer for sure ?
Very late award for this Staffelkapitän 3.(F)/33 -> 01.05.1945 , in action during late war period over Hungary. Last rank Hauptmann - but the pic shows a Major ! (if I'm correct).
pic (and short bio) for comparisn : http://www.ritterkreuztraeger-1939-45.de/Luftwaffe/B/Ba/Bayer-Hans.htm


page 260 - Georg Stumme ? or Ernst Dehner ?

One id not 100 % ; I would agree this is Dr. Karl Mauss ; confirmations list or someone says IS ?
page 287 : PIC_2_656_jpg

Hi chris44,

is this caption allright ? (asking this also in order to have accuracy in other RKT compilations)
Karl Rihsle / AHF id ; name spelling according to the info by his son and the grave stone inscription (name erroneously appears as Riesle in wartime documents/files)
[name info taken from rk.de] The original Austrian name was Rihsle, whereas the version Riesle often used/seen was a mistake by the administrations and clerks ?

regards
Bernd

Hi Bernd!

the name Rihsle is correct
this was confirmed by the son of Karl Rihsle
the gravestone as well shows the name Rihsle
