Very nice. I imagine the photo of airmen looking at the map shows a coastal region - perhaps Holland ?

Well, I have found out who the Major is in the white tunic in the Map/target photos. It is RK winner GeneralMajor Hans-Joachim Rath. After some extensive research I believe I have found the Major with the Prussian Pilots badge sitting at the coffee table too.....Major Dr. Gottlieb Wolff. I am still researching and trying to collect anything I can on KG4 so I will post the new pics I have coming and any new info.
Im very excited i found Hans Joachim Rath tho, he is well known. Also, there is something that looks like the word "England" written in ink on the bottom of one photo too. I Think it was written post war tho

The Green Nautiker tabs were prohibited by an order in November 1941. Those people would have changed their tabs to yellow flight or pink with props engineer. I think it is reasonable to expect the change would have taken some time. An educated guess is these pics could not be later than 1941.

Oh wow, thanks alot for your assesment. I was able to ID quite a few of these men, since this thread had came to a halt. Ive actually also been able to pick up a handful of other KG4 photos to go with this grouping, but I think they are a bit later war.
I considered selling this grouping lately as I am focusing on Heer-Panzer now, but its a tough one to let go as it took me a while to collect them and much time researching! haha

You are correct. I had not really taken these photos out of the album I have them in, for a while now. But after looking at the backs of some of them, and the partial research I did, the date I keep seeing written on the backs is indeed October of 1941.
I have made many ID's from the writings, and was also lucky enough to get a few ID's from a member who was in contact w/ a later member of KG4 who was nice enough to have a look at my photos. He was able to ID a few men who would not have been ID'ed otherwise.
