From my father's post-war papers I have a letter signed by General László Solymos. Could this be the same person?

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum! :welcome:
Beregfy was promoted to General in 1939 and was a Colonel-General at the beginning of 1944, so it can't be him, though I can see the resemblance.

Hi,
Another one.
Who are the 3 Hungarian officers with General Jány Gusztáv?
Two of them are generals at least.
