Ivan, that's Friedrich "Fritz" Holzer, holder of the DGiK, NKSiG, and the RK.

Hi Ivan, I agree with your assessments.

1) Fritz von Scholz

2) Helmuth Dörner

3) Karl Ullrich (wearing SS runes on his collar, so taken during the summer of 1942 when he was Stopi of the SS-Panzerkorps)

4) Otto Baum

5) Arzelino "Lino" Masarie

Thank you, Marc.

I wasn't sure about Ullrich, because he had changed his hair-style a bit on that photo.
(maybe he thought with new kragenspiegel comes a new hairstyle as well :wink: )

Cheers,
Ivan

And what about this SS-Standartenführer?
This photo was posted somewhere in this over-100-pages-thread
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?t=29879
and I think the man remained unidentified...

I think that's SS-Standartenführer und Oberst der Schutzpolizei Rudolf Pannier.

Is this RKT Theodor Wisch perhaps?
It seems that he's wearing the rank of SS-Standartenführer,
but it could also very likely be SS-Oberführer.
I'm not sure if it is Wisch because it looks like he has Eichenlaub as well
and in that case he should be wearing the rank of SS-Brigadeführer.
But maybe my "Eichenlaub" is simply a trick of the light.

I can confirm that's Wisch with Jochen Peiper.

Thanks, Mike,
I thought it might be Peiper, but he looked a bit dark to me.
Any ideas about the date (also Wisch's rank) ?

Cheers,
Ivan

Can't give a precise date or tell you if he's a Staf. or Oberf. in this photo (he's certainly one or the other as he did not receive the Eichenlaub until 12.02.1944, by which time he had been promoted SS-Brigf.u.Gen.Maj.d.W-SS).
