I think there were only 6:
Karl Henze, Helmut Bruck, Georg Jakob, Franz Kieslich, Alexander Glaeser and Gerhard Steudemann. Can anyone confirm that it was a young Glaeser? The RK looks pasted on.

Cheers

Hello Freiherr
This is Erbo Graf von Kageneck (see page 19)
Take care
Denis

Edit : Sorry, haven't seen your response 1 page later :roll:

Hmm, you are right, Dieter.

So #3 must be Danzer because of the panzer wrap and #4 must be Salzmann the ObLt

Who was Starosta and who was Käs then?
