Hi!

I know I'll kick myself, because I know the face, but I'm damned if I can put a name to it or decipher the signature. The years must be catching up on me! :(

Hi!

This Generalleutnant RKT and DKiG holder was mis-named as von Strachwitz here: http://www.strachwitz.net/content/view/143/42/lang,en/

Any ideas as to his true identity?

Regards,

VJK
