100% sure it was Obstlt. i.G. Hans Speth Ia XXVII. Korps and then Gen. d. Inf. Alfred Wäger Kmdr. Gen. XXVII. Korps. They were based in eastern France consistent with Georges' diagnosis.

This will cut the time frame of the french pics back a bit as Speth was Ia XXVII. Korps until 30.09.40.


As always many thanks for your highly professional and competent opinion, Elwyn!

in the diary of a former POW, there is mention of a trip of Himmler on july 14 1940 in the barracks who served of assembling camp for french POW at Belfort.

In the mag "La Revue Historique Neufchateloise" n°3/2005 is mentionned " photographie d'Himmler avec des officiers allemands à la frontières des Verrières".
This data fit with identification of picture 7.

This is valuable information, Georges!

So we have 3 ways in this big photoset:

1. Himmler in Przemysl (january 1940)
2. Himmler in Belfort POW camp (july 1940)
3. Himmler in Eastern France (september 1940)

I,m not mistaken?

very interesting pics of Himmler at the swiss border. Did he go in the no man's land or in Switzerland and why ? Men with cap with edelweiss appear on the 2 pics.
