Still no one who knows who these Knight's cross holders are?

Elimar Meyer was Elimar Meyer! Gran Sasso, I think.

Hello

To Daniel : the Heer Major wearing the Feldmutze a.A. might be Harry Schlingmann. Anyway, he is not easy to identify !
Let me know
Regards
Denis

Hi Denis, it's actually Heinz Bödicker. Do you know if Harry Schlingmann recieved the tank destruction badge?

Hi Daniel
I don't know since my pic does't allow to see his sleeve. I just found that based on criteria and on his pic which was available, this unkonwn soldier looks like to Schlingmann (among the 85 RKT possible in my opinion).
Heinz Bödicker was also in my list but unfortunately, I had no pic for him.
Are you defintively sure ?
Regards
Denis

Hello Herbert
I was said this would be Ulrich Laschet but I have no defintive confirmation.

There was this second pic. But I seem to recall it also came from the same auction site. You know how reliable these sources are. No way of confirming but this was also claimed to be Laschet

Looking at Herbert's pic and Freiherr's one, they look very similar.
Maybe it is indeed Laschet, but I'm not an expert on this.
Just my point of view.
Cheers.
