On the Kuhl photo 45.17KiB, the officer on the right appears to be Horst Ademeit, also a major of JG54.

Docarchiv- I believe the photo 55.03 is von Tiesenhausen. While he posed with a mock up K.C. at Salamis (60.38) His award was not officially authorized until 27.01.42. Since he was at sea until 28.02.42 and this marked his transfer to La Spezia and the 29th Flotilla, from where he left on his next patrol. You can check it with Manfred Dorr to be sure. Best wishes.

Hello, docarchiv,

The picture posted as A1.jpg on Page 312 is a photo of Hauptmann Heinrich Gerlach and the officer on the right is Elimar Meyer-Wehner. Both received the Knight's Cross for the liberation of Benito Mussolini from the Gran Sasso Sports Hotel in the Abbruggi Mountains. Gerlach was the pilot of the Fiesler Storch and Meyer-Wehner was the glider pilot who landed his glider closest to the hotel to surprise Mussolini's Italian guards.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry

Hello, again, docarchiv,

The picture immediately below the one I just id'd, is a photo of Elimar Meyer-Wehner. I think he is listed as Elimar Meyer, and may have added the name Wehner after the war.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Terry

Hello,

thank you for help in the case of Korten. I today received the photograph of our submarin discussion. Take a look at the bear. It is not the same von Tiesenhausen has on the photograph I presented you. If we are sure, that it is La Spezia, who could it be?

Thank you!

Hello,

who is this LW-Ritterkreuzträger?

On the picture was written:

"Ein Herr vom LW-Stab, 1940/41 Frankreich"

Is it Wilhelm Knapp?

The photo on 55.03 and 32.01 are of Von Tiesenhausen. When he returned to Salamis on December 3, 1941, the crew thought he would immediately be approved for the KC and they made a Knights Cross for him that you see in some photos. There was a delay however, and he was not approved for the award until Jan 27, 1942, two months after he sank the battleship. He did not actually receive the KC until Feb 28, 1942 because he was at sea. He arrived at La Spezia on 2-28-1942
