        Hello Jaime,
        i wrote the following description on my website. What do you think about it? Is it correct in your opinion? Thanks

        "This small (50x70 mm) vintage photo, probably taken by a German officer following the Feldmarschall Walther von Brautschitsch which is in fact portrayed in the center of the trio of generals with Friedrich Dollmann on his right and Johann Pflugbeil on his left who looks like wear the St Heinrich Kommandeurkreuz received during the First World War and not the Ritterkreuz which will receive only 12.8.1944. The DKiG he received on 11.4.1942 does not seem to be present on the uniform and therefore the photo was certainly taken before this date.
        The Generaloberst Friedrich Dollmann, pictured on his right, was the commander in chief of the 7. Armee since the invasion of France and until June 28, 1944 when he committed suicide in his command of Le Mans after Hitler had blamed him for not having defended the "fortress" of Cherbourg.
        The Generalleutnant Pflugbeil commanded the 221.Infanterie Division at the time of the invasion of France with which he crossed the Rhine on 15 June 1940 to attack and occupy the city of Kolmar. The division remained in the area until March 1941 when he formed the troops for the constitution of the 221.Sicherungs Division sent on the eastern front under the command of Pflugbeil.
        It is therefore certain that the photo was taken in France before this date, where Dollmann and Pflugbeil were at the same time, during a visit by the Feldmarschall von Brautschitsch in his capacity as Commander-in-Chief of the German Army.

          A very rigorous and historical comment.

          And if you allow me a suggestion, I would say... "Friedrich Dollmann on his right and Johann Pflugbeil on his left who is wearing the St Heinrich Kommandeurkreuz received during the First World War..."

          The proof:



          Cheers,
