I don't think it is North Africa, rather NW Europe. Most probably Germany.

Hi Alex,

Welcome back!

Panzers...inspiration... so Eberbach and the rKT could be Mj Theodor Graf von Schimmlemann? He won the RK before he won the DKiG.

Cheers
Freiherr

Two pictures from KG 55, Lublin 1943. Second person from left was Hptm Heinrich Höfer, kmdr II/KG55. Went on to become ELT. Does anyone recognize the remaining two?
