Hello, again, Bernd,

On Page 3, No. 9 is Oberfeldwebel Max Jensen
No. 49 is General Walter Hoernlein.

Hope this helps.

Hello Terry

Are you sure 41 is Nowotnik? This particular photo has been around for a long time on more than one forum and many believe that it is not Nowotnik.

Hi,

Going through my old files, I found this pic. His face seems very familiar, but I can't put a name to him.

Best regards,

VJK
Double pic deleted. Identical pic - Peter Körte - on the index already (posted by yourself) / Bernd, Mod.

Unknown RK holder, probably Gebirgsjäger.

Hello, John,

Many thanks for your post. Comparing that pic with the one Mr. Nowotnik sent me some years back, and they are different, but, even so, if they are not the same, they could almost be twins. I can see no discernible difference, but I will check further.

I realize that this pic has been around for a while, but I will continue my research on this to confirm or post a correction. In any case, I will write again.

Greetings to you from sunny and cool Amarillo, Texas.

Take care.

Terry

Hello, again, John,

The pic I have which is shown on Page 3 is the same one I have complete with signature. Granted it is a copy of the signed pic, and comparing the original autograph of Mr. Nowotnik with this one, there is a difference. I am not sure if, with time, the signature changed. There are similarities and yet differences.

However the two pix are so close in resemblance in almost all areas, that it would be very difficult not to conclude that the pic on Page 3 is,in fact, Nowotnik. However, at this time, I cannot say 100%, that it is indeed he. It may be that the depicted is not a KC holder, but an imposter.

I can find no name in Krätschmer to coincide with the autograph of the depicted on Page 3.

Sorry, I cannot do more at this time. Perhaps someone can supply additional confirmation of that pic.

Take care.

Terry

Hello, Chris,

Many thanks for that additional information. It is now clear who that pic is supposed to be.

But there is a strong resemblance to Nowotnik in that pic.

Take care, and thanks again.

Best regards.

Terry
