Another RK from Ebay



Hello
see page 301
As already mentioned by Bernd, the 3rd soldier is Hinrich Warrelmann (wearing no RK at the time this photo was taken).
I would say the new Ritterkreuzträger next to Warrelmann might be Wilhelm Broeffel. I need a confirmation on that.

Just a short overview on the current clarified ids and corrections :

page 301 : a7 EBa.jpg (again) - Wilhelm Broeffel ?
is back on the no id list. It is on the index as well -> Hinrich Warrelmann. I mistakenly took the id by John and Harmel as a full answer for this request. The RKT wasn't meant and is still open. Wilhelm Broeffel ?

page 303 : Otto Debus
is on the index now ; two ids/confirmations.

page 312 : 51.8 - Pi Offz to the right
is back on the no id list. The third man is not Rohlfs.

page 329 : Eckhardt von Dewitz
is on the index.

page 335 : Heinrich Ruhl, with Friedrich Fangohr
on the index ; Ruhl's divisional cdr. (122. ID) is added.

Hello Denis,

perhaps this photograph showing Broeffel may help you!

RE: the General der Infanterie Erich Abraham case

Hi Freiherr,

the one thing which is solid is the Wilhelm Wegener id.
The pic on page 340 : Wilhelm Wegener can be regarded as part of a series where this one on page 301 : Wilhelm Wegener does belong to as well I think. Warrelmann was rejected at least.

Upon your and Terry's objection I have shifted the photo in question to the confirmations list :
page 88 : Erich Abraham
The id in the past wasn't that strong ("believe") if I have read all statements about this photo. I'm not 100% convinced about Abraham. But, hm, ..can't find another general based on a good argument this moment. There was no "Yes" for him in this re-check round right now.

A third thing is about your three part Abraham example : viewtopic.php?p=1395442#p1395442
Firstly, thanks for the material without saying ! :D I cannot suppress doubts if the pic on the left side indeed shows Abraham.. :?

Attached is another Abraham photo, taken from the AHFactbook gallery : http://axishistory.com/index.php?id=4433

greetings,
Bernd

As regards the Abraham tryptich, I have seen the one on the left captioned elsewhere as Walther Risse but the ribbon bar seems to match the one in the centre.

The KC General visiting the Hitlerjugend operation on page 341 (posted by Someone from Kharkov) was identified in a posting by Akira Takiguchi on another forum as Albrecht Schubert.

It's actually Hauptmann ALBERT SCHROEDER from 3./Heeres-Flak-Artillerie-Abteilung 287 who received RK in 9 December 1944...
