i know this is an old thread but if anyone is still following it I am looking for a photograph taken in June, July 1944 in Rennes France. The shot is of a pilot (could be Priller) describing an aircraft manuveur (typical two hands one following the other sort of thing) to a patient in a hospital bed with others around the bed including some Allied wounded POWs. I remember seeing the photo in the 1950s could be in a history text or encyclopedia but I haven't been able to find it.

So doesn't anyone have an idea where I could find the photo or the photographers that were working in Rennes France in the time frame?

I found this page in my miscellaneous microfilm file. Not entirely sure how it came to me, but thought you might find it interesting.

The following information was gotten from Roll 106 of National Archives Microfilm Publication T-70, Records of the Reich Ministry for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, 1936-1944. This roll contains casualty reports on Propaganda Company reporters/photographers, as well as for members of the SS Standarte “Kurt Eggers” (formerly the SS Kriegsberichte Abteilung (War Correspondent Section)). This information, used with the dates on the back of the contact prints in 242-JRP and SS, might be of use in providing geographic identification to the photographs in these series.

Hello to all :D; more.................................

Wilhelm Otto Walz.

The War Correspondent Wilhelm Otto Walz, whose Signal readers were able to appreciate the photografical reports taken on the spot in first line, fell in fight against the Bolshevism. Son of Württemberg. They started at 18 in the German infantry during the summer of 1917 and fought on various fronts. In 1940 this 41-year-old journalist signed up and joined the Signal team. The Iron Cross 1st and 2nd Class, the Infantry Assault Badge, the East Medal and the Crimea Badge come to reward Wilhelm Otto Walz, constantly under fire. Four times the enemy's bullets hits him. He went back up in line, last time, a fifth bullet struck him dead.
