Many thanks for your response. I do have a copy of the postcard depicting Kalkhoff, but I am not very knowledgeable as to how to add pix to this forum. It seems very complicated to me. The only thing different in the postcard of Kalkhoff and your picture, is the hair. As an enlisted man, Kalkhoff wore his hair long and he had a large shock of hair.

In your picture, he is shown with a haircut. But the facial features do suggest Kalkhoff as opposed to Steglich. But the differences are so small as to be almost insignificant.

Take care.

Hello, docarchiv,

Many thanks for the clarification. Well, then I am at a loss as to who it may be. It seems somewhat odd to me that he would have remained an Oberfeldwebel until the end of the war when he held that rank for 5 years without a promotion. Many others with the Knight's Cross were promoted on the spot.

Anyway, I have offered my opinion and if you or anyone else establishes the id of the officer, I would be very interested in knowing who it is.

Thanks, again.

Take care.

Terry

Hello,

Foto 36.jpg I am pretty sure it's General der Gebirgstruppe Franz Böhme.

A post by Anil containing -> source : Web to denote the source of the photo added, was removed. This is out of the photo + source rules. That's just not enough. See the guidelines of the forum.

Hi Anil, thanks, and thanks for the PM, all fine, no problem !


@all,

a few days ago this thread crossed two remarkable marks ! 300 pages and 400.000+ views !

In the name of the AHF staff and in the name of all members and viewers I would like to say thank you very much to all participants during the last over six years !! All the "crews" of the early years, the current "id crew" and those members who are part of this from the very beginning until today have created this enormous, fascinating and useful topic. Not to forget all who requested ids and delivered so many photos. Keep on going, dear colleagues !

Kind regards
Bernd :D
