I would say Major Roeckl, because other photos in same set were taken in late summer and autumn 1941.

Another photo identified as Heinrich Roeckl was at das-ritterkreuz.de:

Face and uniform looks similar.

BTW, he has a Jäger badge on his right sleeve. Why? He served before as Jäger?

The left is Erich Topp. What about the other Knight's Cross recipients?

How about this Eichenlaubträger from Kriegsmarine? His face look familiar but I couldn't remember who he is...

About unbenannt1.jpg with three U-boot commanders. In the middle - not Kuppisch, It's Claus Korth.

The bomber pilot on page 319 item 44.17 appears to be Wilhelm Schmitter. He was a first lieutenant when he got the K>C. according to Angola's On the field of honor.

It is not Schmitter in my eyes!

Hello, gentlemen,

Some pictures from Süddeutsche Zeitung photoarchiv, prwz 8.jpg I think it's Josef Dirkmorfeld, but your confirmation is the best estimate. :D :wink: Unfortunately other not known to me.

Best wishes

Walther Bradel do not have a Narvik shield. Maybe it's Joachim Helbig L.G.1 ?
Hello,

Definitely not Helbig.

My version is based on two points:

1) Walter Bradel participated in operation "Weserübung" as part of KG 3 and he could be awarded a Narvik shield, but we don't have information about this (omission in award documents or incomplete information? :roll: )

2) His facial features and some of awards matched (in my view)

Best wishes

Ruslan
