  1. Hi, These have all been on ebay recently. Thought I'd share before they disappear into the ether...
  2. Hi Paul, Thanks for trying. I have meanwhile found another pic of this man, but unfortunately it is probably too far away to be of use.
  3. Hi Vince, Thanks a lot. Hi Paul, I've tried a couple of close-ups. Hope it helps.
  4. Hi guys, I'm hoping that this Luftwaffe Oberst will be identifiable via his medal bar. Can anyone confirm what medals he is wearing? There is a reasonable chance that he became a General.... Thanks, Matt.
  5. Hi Andreas, Some great photos. I hope you don't mind my hijacking your thread, but I'd be grateful to know when Richard Frhr. v. Süßkind-Schwendi was promoted to General. Thanks, Matt.
  6. Hi all, This was on ebay recently. Does anyone know who it is? Thanks, Matt.
  7. Hi all, Has anyone ever considered if it would be practical and worthwhile to start a photo database of German Generals, in the same way that we have the signature database? The reason I ask is that a picture of an obscure General might appear on ebay etc, only to be lost in cyberspace once it has been purchased. I must admit that my interest is only cursory but I wonder what others think about it? Best regards, Matt.
  8. Hi Claudius, Haha! Great quote. The first book is an excellent read, and I have the TV series box-set at home. Best regards, Matt.
  9. Hi Paul, I have been browsing the web about the Luftwaffe Admin units and I saw your name crop up, so I knew it would peak your interest. I have sent you a p.m. All the best, Matt.
  10. Hi Turtle and Jeremy, Thanks a lot! If I find anything about his life and career, I'll be sure to let you know
  11. Hi, This has always been the source of great irritation for me - trying to identify uniform ranks and patches which I can never find online. Can anyone tell me what this guy's rank and unit is? Any idea of the medals displayed on his ribbon bar will be an added bonus The man's name is Hermann Walter. Thanks a lot, Matt.
  12. Hi Ulsterman, Thanks for the info. This photo (and 3 others) were for sale on ebay.de http://www.ebay.de/itm/4-TOP-Fotos-Portrait-Generalmajor-von-Viebahn-Orden-Abzeichen-Privataufnahmen-/371238095990?pt=Militaria&hash=item566f83cc76 Regards, Matt.
  13. Hi ccj, I'm not sure because I don't know when the pic was taken. But it is a good possibility.
  14. Hi Daniel, Thanks a lot. Hi Paul, I think he is one of the von Viebahn clan, but I'm not sure which...
  15. Hi all, Saw this pic being sold on ebay recently (as part of a photo album). I have a slightly better resolution image on my computer if anyone wants it. Regards, Matt.
