Two more older pics are identified.

Crossed out from the "No id" list :
page 270 : Ludwig Stautner
See two other Stautner pics on the index for comparisn. In particular see this old and renewed ABR thread
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7977
with the id and more !


Crossed out from the confirmations list :
page 4 (Offz behind Goebbels) : Otto Benzin
Compare with any of the known head portraits of Benzin ; no doubt, 100%.
Additionally see another photo from the same occasion - Demjansk Kämpfer at the meeting with Goebbels, May 1943 - (source: Bundesarchiv / wikimedia) :

Thanks to a colleague watching for this input !! :D

RE : the Glasl/Franek case and the Wolfmüller case.

Treated like that.

Listed on the confirmations list :
Dr. Friedrich Franek (bigger size down the page)
-> summary of the case

A proof or more in-depth-argumentation is missing. If someone could take the time to look for Glasl's assignments (Italy ?) ?

Kept listed on the "fake" list :
post war imposter, hence all the awards etc. His real name is Rudi Wolfmüller
-> summary of the case and more arguments by hawkeye 1
Listed according to the standard handling. All what was said before + qualified input by hawkeye 1 + no counter-argument by feldpost = "AHF id". Open to the proof of the contrary.
