Paul may well be correct.  As to context, Queipo de Llano went to Berlin [without Franco's authorization!] just before the last Legion Condor contingent returned to Germany in March, 1939 to thank & welcome them back home.  I cannot make out any condor legion badges on the Germans, however.   German Spanish Cross awards commenced in April, 1939 so would not expect to see such awards in an image taken in March, 1939.

Of course he had many other encounters with German military figures.

Here's an image of a younger Queipo de Llano .

Hi Paul,

I think you´re right with him, thanks a lot much appreciated.

Here is another photo that came with the bundle, because of

the architectural of the building I would rather think Italy or Spain.

Hello : I think that is not Gral Queipo , Looks different , older and shorter in height , he wears a jacket with open collar shirt and tie . that was not common . the Republic changed in 1932 the open collar jacket of the 1922 regulations to an closed collar one . Only durin 1943 a open collared jacket was reintroduced . probably the photo is dated from 1943 onwards and taked in Spain and the Gral is receiving a German General and entourage visiting the country .
