This pic from home.hetnet.nl shows Generalmajor Walter Grabamann and another RKT. My question is: which one is Grabmann and who's the other RKT?

Hi!

Can anyone please identify this highly decorated officer, wearing amongst others, the RK, DKiG, Romanian Order of Michael the Brave (Ordinul “Mihai Viteazul”), III Class, a shield (Krim or Kuban?), cuffband (and a duelling scar?)?

Many thanks in advance,

VJK

and the third man is the Kommodore NJG 1, Major Jabs (oakleaves).
Look at Werner Held / Holger Nauroth "Die deutsche Nachtjagd", Motorbuch Verlag Stuttgart, o.J., pages 178 & 180.

Thank you Oberstab.

Here's a pic from http://www5c.biglobe.ne.jp/~PEIPER/page017.html
Anybody recognizes this RKT from Totenkopf? Look at his right arm, could that be a tank destruction badge?

It's Hermann Buchner and yes, he received a badge.

Many thanks Daniel.
Can't believe my bad visual memory, I've been looking a couple of pics of Buchner these days and I couldn't recognize him. :roll:

Hello guys
Glad to see you after my vacations.
I think this officer is Wilhelm Schöning. I based my assumption on the fact that we can see a sleeveband which is seemingly a "Feldherrnhalle" one (as well as cyphers on the shoulders straps).

Denis

Hello
The Uscha depicted page 41 shown shaking hand and wearing a pea pattern wrapper was identified as being Bobby Woll but I think he is closer to Johann Thaler.

Hi Denis!

I hope you had a good vacation. Many thanks for identifying Schöning - I looked at the Das Ritterkreuz site and the pic there confirms it.

Regards,

Hi Fangio
Based on the information which is availbale on the pic, I would say Adolf Reeb or Otto Schneider. IMO, they are both the closest guys who look like this officer.

Hi Denis!
Based on the names you gave I had a look at http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de and I could confirm it's Ostuf Otto Schneider, look: http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de/index_sea ... wert1=5753
Many thanks for your help.
Best regards,

EDIT: forgott to say, welcome back Denis!
