Hugo I think you are right. The flat part of his inner ear is the right shape and those sun glasses. It also looks like he had a bad sun burn at the time. My concern is that this photo is without the German cross in gold. I also read somewhere that he was never officially approved for the knights cross.
I do NOT think that this general be GenLet Walter BOTSCH.
I do not see any resemblance and he was awarded the Ritter Kreuz on May 9th, 1945.

This picture is still a bit of a mistery to me.
Cheers.

Thanks a lot man. That explains why this Gen. isn't wearing a DKiG.
