Thanks to John,

but Kertsch and the date is only the situation of MIA! That's why is it only one possibility that he also died there... Maybe some can look if the there KIA KC holders John wrote looking like the one I posted!?

Thanks also to Daniel...

But why was he named in an official MIA list of the 50. ID? Or is only the pic wrong and not adequate for the name and the dates!?

Regards and thanks

Hannes

Could he also wear a tropical uniform like the divisions in Cuban area had?

Looks like Reichsfreiherr von Edelsheim (Kdr. 24.Pz.Div. & KG XXXXVIII.Pz.Korps).

Hi!

I think the general could also be General der Infanterie Hans GOLLNICK,
22.5.1892-15.2.1970, KC 21.11.42, EL 24.8.43. In the last months WWII
Corps-Cdr XXVIII AC.....
On the other hand Edelsheim was nearby Berlin, "big_berlin" (Groß-Berlin)
on the pic? but I can't see swords (23.10.44)?.

Regards

Vienna

It's Hermann Eckhardt. Her received the Knight's cross on the 28.03.1945 which might explain this picture.

OK,

here two three more KC holders - to the other above - from Guido Knopp "Hitlers Kinder"(Hitler's children) requesting you to ID:

The first both are from "Grossdeutschland"!
