    Kriegsmarine Admirals ID thread and photo Database

    Recommended Posts

    I want to start this thread to help anyone with identifying Kriegsmarine Admirals from photos.

    If you need help with unknown Admirals please post them here.

    I am starting this thread in hope that members of the forum will share with us their photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals.

    You can also post any photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals you have, that show already identified Admirals.

    I also have a number of photos with unknown Admirals I need help with (I will be posting them here), so if you have any idea who they might be please share your thoughts.

    Thank you

    Does anyone recognize this Konteradmiral? Or the place where the photos were taken?
    The officer far left on the 3rd photo is Kapitän zur See (Ing.) Ernst Dorn, Kommandeur Kriegsschiffbaulehrabteilung für Unterseeboote Nord (6. Kriegsschiffbaulehrabteilung) (he can also be seen on the last photo, in the center).

    Does anyone recognize this admiral? His exact rank is unknown (most probably Konteradmiral or perhaps Vizeadmiral). The photo was taken in Oslo, Norway. I can't identify him. If anyone has any ideas please help.


    Rudolf Peters?

    Some ID's from my older posts: Unknown #2 is Vizeadmiral Herbert Straehler; Unknown #3 is Konteradmiral z.V. Heinrich Kehrhahn; Unknown #5 is Char. Admiral Iwan Christian Hermann Oldekop.

    I need help with identifying this admiral. I think he is a Konteradmiral. I don't know where the photo was taken, it looks like some sort of barracks. Any help is much appreciated!
