Hello freiherr,

your picture shoes not Hans Richter. It is Johannes Richter, KC 39.09.1944 as Leutnant and leader 2. / Pz.Gren.Rgt. 304

Hi!

This pic was labelled on e-bay as being Otto Wöhler. Having just had my eyes tested recently, I can't use that as as excuse for not being able to reconcile the pic with Wöhler. :D

Can anyone please offer an alternative identification?

Regards,

VJK

UB_5.jpeg posted by Daniel on PP51 was taken on the same day as the following. It's the same house and RK on Betzels neck. There seemed to be no RKT in the entire pic except for the panzermann on the extreme right and even then it was tricky -- identified by Biblio Verlag as ObFwb Karl Ketterer who won his RK while serving 15PzRgt/11 Pz> Does anyone know if he was transfered to 4 Pz?

Cheers

Who were they: the NCO from ebay, the Major from Detlev Niemann.

Hi!

The face seems familiar, but I just can't place him. Can anyone please put me out of my misery and identify this RKT and DKiG Generalleutnant.

Many thanks in advance,

VJK

Hi Vienna!

Thank you so very much - I knew that I knew him but I got too much involved in the pic being of a Generalleutnant and forgot to check the Generale.

Best regards,

VJK

Who's this RKT (source: vincon-militaria)
The pics are within a group of photos showing Alfred Wünnenberg. Maybe this RKT is from 4.SS Polizei?

I am told that one of these RKTs is the later EL winner Gerhard Friedrich, but I don't know which. Can anyone say who the four are?

Thanks
John

Hi Hardigan, I really don't think it's Schümers.

Yes, Giesecke and Schümers plus Hans Traupe and probably Günther Butte (both with DKiGs).

Looking at this photo I get somewhat confused. Compare the length of the ribbon for example.
