The funeral of Adenauer took place on 25.04.1967 (which Hans Guhr also attended) in Cologne's Cathedral.

Interesting to note is that Adenauer's coffin was guarded by Knight's Cross holders

This is a zoom on the larger group picture, with Hans Guhr in the middle.

First on the left is Hauptmann der Reserve Wilhelm Hümmerich (1917 - 2008) and next to him is Oberleutnant Ekkehard Kylling-Schmidt (1918 - 2000).
