Two more RKTs want to be identified. The scenery is the Operation Zitadelle, both men appear to be senior officers, the panzer officer also wears the cloth version of DKiG. The pictures come from Japanese pictorial Operation Zitadelle. Battle of Kursk.

Hello Mark V,

I think it is Ernst Häußler

Hi!

I'll kick myself, because I know I've seen this pic before, but I can't find it to put a name to this RKT and DKiG holder.

Regards,

VJK

Thanks for your help, Ingo. Yes, he does look like Häußler but unfortunately (from the whole photo) it appears he's is from a Heer unit. Sorry for not mentioning this earlier :( . He does look rather familiar!? Or not.

Hi Dieter!

Many thanks for putting me out of my misery - don't you just hate it when you know the face but the name continues to escape you!

Best regards,

Of course, dear Jan-Hendrik, but he received the KC as Gefreiter. I want to emphasize this :)

Thank you! Did he receive any tank destruction badges like he is shown on the front page of the Landser magazine? Or maybe he knocked out tanks but did not receive the badges?

Best regards/ Daniel
