100% sure, based on his picture on the"Weg und Schicksal der 11.Inf.-Div" by W.Buxa. Podzun- Verlag 1952.

Hi Vienna & Miocid!

Many thanks for your speedy input, it is much appreciated. Although it isn't patricularly clear, I suspected that the General now identified as Feyerabend is wearing the Kurland cufftitle. You don't often see pics of it in wear by senior officers! I agree that #1 has a similarity to Gustav Wagner, but perhaps someone has some other suggestions?

Many thanks again and regards,

VJK

Hello again!

I'll kick myself for not recognising this General, but for the life of me I just can't put a name to the so familiar face!
