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

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

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.

Hello, Fangio,

According to the caption, that is a depiction of Clemens Graf Kageneck with his wife.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

This is the weirdest Knight's Cross recipient I've ever seen. In fact, is this real or just another online seller? But if it's real, who is he?
