Willi Hägele , page 138 / index - this is him for sure. There is a similar photo without visor cap he usually signed. (I know of)

A supplement to this, since I finally managed to do the format conversion of my database pics.. :)
Attached is the Willi Hägele portrait I meant (signature cut off at the bottom of this version) [source: a personal collection]

And, I like the tradition performed by our colleague and friend Phil Nix to just post some nice and interesting photos from time to time. Therefore, a second photo attached shows Max Sachsenheimer wearing the Jäger cap badge. [source on pic]

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.
