It didn't take an hour and the first id is done..it's a pleasure and an honour to be your Co-Mod, Dieter, many thanks for starting the 3rd round review results ! :D

I felt, this W-SS general has to find an id for sure. The same for another W-SS officer on page 7. So, here is a supplement :
page 7 : RK - 6003_2.jpg
small pic and not the best quality, Yes, but.. ; once I said Walter Mix maybe (because of a similar pic with the winter cap), but No, this is W-SS (Kragenspiegel and cap badge of the man to the left).

The page 7 picture is definitely Hoehne rather than Lützow.

Thanks John, so the Frhr Lützow pics [page 9] are OK, the one on the left, shown also as a single on [page 7] will be corrected to Gustav Höhne then.

docarchiv, re: the "Sandkasten" group,
I can confirm Mickley. Now I recall, I have seen him identified some years ago. I have stored him in my database like that at least.

Who is the Ritterkreuzträger? Is it normal that an officer below general's rank awarded this badge?
