Hello all,

Could one help with identification of this person?
Heinrich Roeckl / AHF id

This photo was taken presumably in Estonia or in Leningrad region.

Hi, Denis,

He looks like Heinrich Roeckl to me.

Best wishes

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?

Regards, Denis

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!
