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 .

thats dates the photo in 1940 or early 1941 . von Wietersheim commanded a Motorized AK during the Invasion of France but in June 1941 he took part with his AK in Barbarossa

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
