Could anyone identify these?

In a.jpeg, at the minimum the two guys that were not in summer uniform had RK's.

In b.jpeg, its GFM Busch and an EL winner. He looked a little like Friedirch Lier.

c.jpeg was supposed to be in Russia. Nobody could identify anything from this pic which I took from wehrmacht-awards.com

Cheers
Freiherr


Hallo helper Freiherr,
second pic, the great at left: GFM Ernst Busch,
Chers Oberstab


Dear Freiherr,
please excuse. Here my next considerations: I don' t believe in Friedrich Lier. Lier recieves his KC 03.11.1944. At this time Busch was out of command!
Busch wears (I believe so) on the pic only his KC (without the oakleaves).
In 1945 Busch wears usually the field cap. I think this is a pic taken on the Eastern front 43 / 44.
Cheers and merry Christmas

Hi HT,

The few pics of Loch always had him wearing glasses. The portrait shot of Loch suggested that he was a small fellow but do you have other pics that make you think so?

cheers

Hello F.,


New evidence beside the face - I just finished a little research :

http://members.tripod.com/~Sturmvogel/stug.html#600


Now I convinced in 100% it's Loch - The 667 SturmGeschutzBatt.
was part of the XXVIII commanded by Loch the time Kirchner
won the KC

Hi Fangio!

I believe the General in 17.jpg is Generalleutnant Arnold Freiherr von Biegeleben. Here is a comparison.

Regards,

VJK

He Fangio, why are you writing in capital letters. The boss doesn´t like it. Wait until Marcus see that.:wink:

btw: Request for ID please! Very strange combination Ritterkreuz + Eichenlaub + Warrior Honor Cross of Grand Duchy of Hessen (below the EK I)!!! Very rare, could only find some recipients (v. Herff, Lothar v. Seydlitz) in the Reichsheer-Rangliste. I guess he could be a former Polizei officer. Hääälp!
