Informational : the photo "RK-T-34.jpg" the previous page - no id - appears on page 162, too, with less shadow in the face of the man (and a bad quality close-up).

Hello together,

Thank you very much for the answers.

I suppose, the Pictures was taken by the 18. Infanterie-Division. The other Ritterkreuzträger could be Friedrich Herrlein?!
And the other officers?

Thanks and best Regards

Dear member Alter.Sammler,

obviously you decided to just ignore my short and kind hint to provide sources for the photos. I don't know why you are not able to just say "...from my own collection" or so. So, you do the "08/15" style, me too then.

So, take a look here please on the Forum Guidelines - Posting Images

Next disregard of the rules and this hint from your side will result in measures named in the link above without further warning.

Thanks ! and Kind Regards
Bernd / Moderator

SORRY!
All Pics I posted are from my own collection.

The Edit-Function doesn't work with me, because I wrote this information of source in my first thread.

One pic shows Gustav Schmidt ( I think ) awarding RK to ObstLt Gustav Adolf Bruns on 15.10.42. -- So not the same RKT in second pic. What does the second pic show? Hans Källner awarding RK to a Mj. Was it Mj Alfred Nähring or Mj Walter Mecke?

das-ritterkreuz.de has a pic of Nähring

Cheers
Freiherr
The first pic and second pic are of Major Alfred Nähring. With helmet off and his troop tucking in the Knights cross.
The third on is not Nähring.

Identify this Ritterkreuzträger

Post by Panzerspitze » 20 Aug 2009 00:52

Can anyone identify the Ritterkreuzträger at 5:25? Culling through the awardee list in the timeframe, I still come up empty.
