Byzanti, the guy in the middle w/cuff title is Sepp Dietrich. Regards, Leipzig

Wouldn't Sepp Dietrich wear the Adolph Hitler cuff title?

Dean, yes, I thought about that. But Dietrich was a pretty short guy [5'6"] with very distinctive ears [look at known photos of him] and to me that looks like him. Of course, I could be wrong. Regards, Leipzig

Not Dietrich. This is a Totenkopf Regiment Officer.

Thanks guys for the input...so any idea about who these guys may be? I can tell you that the other photos in the group were combat pics, fellow in a tank, a guy behind a flak gun, and some battlefield photos. It's a cool grouping, but having trouble identifying these guys...

Well the that could be Max,,,,got the glasses, height, weird kind of shape.. No knights cross but it depends when it was taken. He did get the German cross before but we can't see that side..yeah could be!
