Thanks! After looking them up one by one, it's surprising to me that all of the awardees pictured were from the Fallschirmjäger arm. I was assuming most, if not all of them, got to be pilots or aircrew of the Luftwaffe Proper.

Hello Gentlemen,

I have found this photo on http://www.rommel-lebt.com/, for sure, general on the left it's EL - holder Ludwig Wolff, but other RK holders not known to me.
