Hi Fangio,

I think that the correct photo of your RK holder would be the one of Axel Bruns.
( http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de/index_sea ... word=bruns)

Here are my reasons to think so:
The man in the photo is young. When Arthur Bruns was awarded the RK he was 43 and the man in the photo is much younger. Axel Bruns was 28 when he got his RK...pretty much the age the man on the photo is.

The shoulder straps on the photo are never the shoulder straps of a Major (which Arthur Bruns was when he got his RK), look at the was it is made. That could be the straps of a Oberleutnant - which brings us to Axel Bruns again.

Taking what I have written above into thought, I have only one answer: The officer in the photo must be Hauptmann der Reserve Axel Bruns.

What do you think?

best,
Miha / Nibelung

I'm confused here, which one is Horst Hain? Or there were two officers with this same name?

Correct me if i'm wrong, but i don't think this man has been identified yet.
Could he be Gerhard Bremer?

LW General ID
Possible reads are : "Otto Kav ??" , or most likely "Ottokar .. ??" ; Original request by balsi, page 74.. There is no Lw GenO matching to this photo. Assumption : this should be an actor's card , starring in a german movie (1950s / guess). / AHF id

Does anyone recognise this Obersturmfuhrer from a Waffen SS Panzer unit?

Thanks,

The owner of this pic is Dr Detlef Köhler (posted in http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com ) The General in the middle is GL Hans Kurt Höcker, but the officer at his left has not been identified yet. Anybody knows who he could be?
