I have added an autograph each to the entries of Wilhelm Bittrich and Walter Schmidt.

The following are merged to one entry meanwhile : Ramcke , Werner Hartmann , and
Aigen , Egon Albrecht , de Angelis , Apelt , Ascher , Axthammer.

The remaining second entries in the letter "A" section, designated -> "(2)", are photoes linked from the RKT id sticky, which should remain in the database.

I have just added this entry. The topic was a pic request and is right now a photo thread by nature. Should be quite ok and sufficient for
Trowitz, Adolf -> Generalmajor Adolf Trowitz

It will be much appreciated by the "generals" community of the forum I think, if we go on there with further additions.
