1. is Johannes Goehler - RK holder with SS-Florian Geyer

2. is Helmut Gunther - GvB Commander and Author of many great books on his war-time experiences -some published in English by Fedorowicz.

Had the pleasure to meet both men before they died.

Can't help with the others, sorry.

Are the last ones both "Masing"? Hans Masing? Maybe brothers?

Thanks guys! I might have figured out Johannes Gôhler but I'm really glad I asked about Helmuth Gunther. That would have been a tough signature to read. Anyone have any ideas about the estonian volunteers? I recently picked up a book "Waffen SS Im Bild" that had both signatures on the inside cover. Thanks again!

The Estonians were members of units commanded by Ritterkreuztrager Alfons Rebane , Estnische Btl 658 this was a Wehrmacht Unit which in 1944 became an SS Btl in the 47 Regiment of the 20th Estonian Div der Waffen SS .

cheers
