ID Slovak Generals

Post by AlifRafikKhan » 28 Dec 2018 08:04

The Minister of National Defense of Slovakia, General Ferdinand Catlos, presents here the Slovak Victory Cross 1st class with a star to the commander-in-chief of the army, Field Marshal Walter von Brauchitsch, during his visit to headquarters in the East, 23 October 1941.
Does someone know the ID of the Slovak general in the background?

Can you be sure that (1) he is a Slovak and (2) he is a general?

I ask because many nationalities might attend a diplomatic function and some of them might be wearing diplomatic, rather than military, uniforms.

The number of possible Slovak generals was extremely small and may barely have reached double figures. This photo is presumably from 1939-41, when their numbers were even smaller.

Have you tried the "Generals of World War Two" website?

Cheers,

Sid.

Hi,

The officer immediately behind Ferdinand Čatloš may be a general officer, but too invisible. Third Slovakian officer (also partially in the shadow) is, I am sure, general Alexander Čunderlik, while the fourth Slovakian officer looks like colonel Alojz Androvič, the military attaché to Berlin, and the rank fits - He is not a general only a colonel.
Kind Regards
