Hi Stephan,

To be honest with you, I'm jealous. You have got a vey impressive album. congrats.

in several photos you said that Lt Thieme-Harmann, the real name is Leutnant Erich Thieme-Gamann from IR 102. He received both iron crosses and knight cross 2nd class with X of Albert Order.

Thanks for sharing those photos with us.

Very interesting photos indeed..!

I especially liked these with aviation connection, like nr 41. I have problem reading the name of the pilot. Could it be Vfw Mohrenschultz or similar..?

I do think that the observer is Lt Binkau. I do not have his first name but he was living in Leipzig after the War, so maybe he have a Saxon connection..

:)

Yes, I was wrong about the name. But I think he is Thieme-Garmann (with "R") as we can see here :

You're right, the observer is Leutnant Binkau. The pilot, I'm not sure but I think Mahrenholtz :

Hi!

I am a Mahrenholtz and probably could figure out who pilot Mahrenholtz was. Do you have any more details? In particular, I would like to see the photo showing the persons, i.e. Leutnant Binkau and Mahrenholtz.

Cheers

Christoph Mahrenholtz
