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.
All clarified and solved through PM talk.
Alter.Sammler,
thanks and sorry ! In relation to the issue (a language thing, too) the moderation was a bit harsh.

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.
Hello hawkeye 1,

welcome to the forum !
Thanks for this id and a definite word on the Källner and ? photo ! This did belong to the all-time most requested.

For a minute I have set this 19. Pz.Div. series on the confirmation list, just to be sure this is meant.
page 60 : series of 3, top -> bottom : Alfred Nähring ; Alfred Nähring and Källner ; Gustav-Adolf Bruns and Gustav Schmidt

And to regard Nähring - first two - as id'ed. (Källner in command 1944)
And to say Yes to Bruns, with Schmidt, possibly, like stated by freiherr with the request alrady. (Gustav Schmidt in command 1942)

That's it, or objections ?

Best regards
Bernd :D

Hello Panzerspitze,

your topic moved to here (due to the time it was posted originally, it appears on the previous page). It is Major Günther Pape, Kdr. Kradschützen-Bataillon 3 / 3. Panzer-Division. See on the index (page 1 of the thread) for Pape photos (same famous ocassion).

Best regards
Bernd

Chris, thank you very much for identifying Hübner, Jacobs, Jedermann and Jura!

Here's a nice picture. Who's the KM Officer having fun with his two daughters and son?
