Hi,

a very nice website with everything to know about the May 30, 1944 exercise at Riva-Bella and Lion-sur-Mer.

Nice pic, especially for the uncommon ritteurkreuz of the KVK.

Hi,

yes i was pretty sure you saw it, very nice website indeed.

I tried to check for Mister N°3, but i was unlucky.
I suspect that it may have been one officer of the artillery units present that day ?

See You

Vince

Hi,

the glue remains of the accompanying caption on the back is a good proof imo that the picture is original.
Fascinating picture indeed.

I do not have any book on the 21. Panzer-Division, but if i have the time, i may try to check my 39/45 Magazine collection to see if i can find this officer...

See You

Vince
