Bundesarchiv pic (free available) from a PLM holder meeting in 1962.
I can see Theodor Groppe (4th from left), Ernst Jünger (7th from left), Otto Schultze (7th from right), Alfred Keller (4th from right) and Arthur Laumann (2nd from right).
Who can identify the others? Thanks in advance!

Generalleutnant Hans von Viereck was not awarded a Pour le Merite, but rather he wears the Johanniterorden.

Hello,
I think my Foto 194 should be Oberst Karl von Kietzell.
Kind regards

I agree. v Kietzell must have suffered serious injuries and lost his left eye.

Thanks
