Hi Denis, Karl Pabst is my guess as well. I recall seing this picture in a book for a long time ago. I don't recall which though.

Best regards/ Daniel

Mike? Hmm, you are actually making me a bit confused now but I was under the impression that it's Pabst from Geb.Art.Rgt. 112 that we were talking about. Right Denis?

Best regards/ Daniel

Here we see Speer, Heer officer, Dietrich, Wolff (left), x (right), Galland (left), y (right), Kriegsmarine RKT (left), z (right), and four more bunched up towards the back.

Can anyone shed light on any of these?

Cheers

Hallo Freiherr,

here is the complete pic from 05.06.1943 in Berlin. It shows the new holders of the Knights Cross of the War Merit Cross taking the salute.
You see from left to right:

unknown officer, Betriebsleiter Albin Sawatzki with Generaloberst Heinz Guderian, unknown officer of Wachregiment "Großdeutschland", Obermeister Johannes Holtmeyer with Sepp Dietrich, OT-Obertruppführer Joseph Hinkerode (KC KVK with swords) with Generalleutnant Ludwig Wolff, Flugwaffen-Facharbeiter Karl Schmidt with Generalmajor Adolf Galland, Obermeister in einem Treibstoffwerk Christian Davidshöfer with Korvettenkapitän Heinrich Liebe.

The next pic shows Sawatzki with Guderian (same day).

Cheers
Oberstab

Hi!

Can anyone please identify this Eichenlaubträger? He seems so very familiar, but I just can't put a name to the face.

Regards,

Hi Oberstab!

Please forgive my ignorance, but it is over 35 years since I studied Latin and about the only thing I remember from then is the following:

Latin is a language,
as dead as dead can be,
It killed the ancient Romans,
and now it's killing me! :lol:

VJK

Sorry VJK,

"Gleiches mit Gleichem heilen" means:
Equal things will be cured by equal things.
Both we are suffering on the same illness.

Who's the other RK (with Oakleaves?) besides Rudel?
Any other info on this pic? Any other Officer recognizable?
Regards.
