Here is one more General - RKT. His name should be something like "Lauz". He is on the photo in Russia 1941 with a Gauleiter, probably his name is "Wahl". Any input on this one?

The general is Hubert Lanz. I can' t confirm that the Gauleiter is indeed Karl Wahl

Thanks for your help Dieter !

I have compared with some more photos and the General is indeed Hubert Lanz, General of the 1st Gebirsgjager Division
I'm not sure about Karl Wahl as well.
Here is a photo of him: http://www.ushmm.org/uia-cgi/uia_doc/qu ... uia_znOolG
He does have the same frightening look :|

Looks very much like Gauleiter Karl Wahl to me.

Best,

Hi freiherr!

A supplement:

Herrn
Leutnant G.....dt (a guesswork)
Zugführer 2./Pz.A.A.A.6 ?? = Panzer artillerie- ausbildungs- abteilung 6 ?? ...Aufklärungs-Ausbildungs-Abteilung 6 ??
zur Errinnerung an gemeinsame Arbeit
Wesel, (a city in Germany with barracks) 31.12.1943

Heilbronn (specially "b" is missing)
Major u. Abt.Kdr.! (not i.G.) = Abteilungskommandeur (=battalion commander)

Because the 6. P.D. fought in russia I think it is from an "Ausbildungsabteilung"(combat training) in Germany.

Regards

Vienna (and a happy New Year to all)
