An redundant quote -> the YouTube frame the post above ! was deleted. / Bernd, Moderator. docarchiv, thanks in advance for saving a bit space and resources of the thread/forum. (use the "reply" button instead for an answering post :idea: )

Hello,

I think it is Pape. He can be seen much better in the first of three parts (called "Der Angriff") of a ZDF (Second German Television) documentation about the battle. Buy it at amazon added to the film "STALINGRAD" produced by a german producer.

Hello, Panzerspitze,

No doubt that the officer at 1.33 is Guenther Pape.

Take care.

Hello, I was hoping someone might be able to recognize these Luftwaffe RKT?? For the group photo, I am particularly interested to know if the guy on the right might be Marseille? And who is the guy on the left? In the other photo, I was initially told that it was Mölders but I dont think it is him...could anyone help me ID him? Thanks for all the help everyone!

I have seen the last one posted captioned elsewhere as 'Boremski or Schentke'.
