Hi Christophe,

I am pretty sure about Hans v Kirchbach. He was much thinner in his old age and almost always wore glasses then. My only problem is he didn't seem to be wearing a Sachsen helmut. But did high ranking Kaiseriche generals not wear Sachsen helmuts?

PS from your own enlargement, not from here, obviosuly


Cheers

Yes. I second him being Karl Hoefer. According to Biblio Verlag, he was Führer to his Freikorps outfit Oberschlesischen Selbstschutzes. Hence all the Silesian Eagles (I spotted 4) his troops were wearing.

And here is Walter Schulz
