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

Thank you!
