Two RKTs from 4.PzDiv. Could they be Kunert (above) and Kunzmann (below)?

Hi
Helmut Thierfelder is perfect (see same picture page 168)

same picture of "Ketterer" on page 169
first suggest there was Karl Küspert
which cant be correct concerning rank...

Karl Ketterer could be fine....??

Hello Björn!

Your Luftwaffe Major is Night fighter Ace (83 victories) Heinrich Prinz zu Sayn-Wittgenstein. He received the Swords (no. 44) posthumously.
