    Friedrich Fromm?

    Friedrich Wilhelm Waldemar Fromm
     (8 October 1888 – 12 March 1945) was a German Army officer. In World War II, Fromm was Commander in Chief of the Replacement Army (Ersatzheer), in charge of training and personnel replacement for combat divisions of the German Army, a position he occupied for most of the war.[1] A recipient of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross, he was executed for failing to act against the plot of 20 July 1944 to assassinate Hitler.C4FFD54A-CAD2-460A-804E-BBD1250A7D72.jpeg

    The pictures are part of a Heer Officer "grouping", he was Bezirksführer as Headmaster of Postschutzschule (Postal protection school) Besenhorst when the General visited the school.

     In August 1939, Erwin Koopmann was commissioned a Leutnant der Reserve with I.R. 90 of the Hamburg 20th Motorized Infantry Division. He did not participate in the invasion of Poland in September, but remained behind as an instructor with I.R.90's Ersatz battalion. 

    After being promoted to Oberleutnant with 2./ I.R.90 on January 1st 1940, Erwin Koopmann was transferred in March 1940 to the operation area of the Western Front in preparation for the upcoming invasion of the Lowlands and France.
