Ian,
#722:
are you ready for another one?

I think that No.16 could be Heinrich Berry. Is there a possibility to x-check this?

Best regards
Armin

Hi Armin
Are you sure you mean No.16?
I have him down as Wilhelm Oelsner

Ooops,

Sorry Ian. My mistake, I was referring to No. 15.

Best regards
Armin

I think you are probably right again Armin. Certainly Heinrich and he was a General-Arbeitsführer He was Führer of Area XXVI Wurttenburg.
Well done and thanks once more

Good evening,

found this award document years ago, together with more than 100 letters of a former german prisoner of war interned in France after 1945.
In the midst of all these letters, the name of the german "Generalleutnant" who signed at the time would interest me, as well as the "Dienstsigel".

The very large bundle of papers and also letters was found in the city of Wiesbaden, in an antiquarian bookstore, for very little money.

Thanks for help!

Ian, thank you very much,

Günther Lohmann was "Luftwaffe"... "General der Aufklärungsflieger": https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_d ... ngsflieger

The former awarded soldier was a "Obergefreiter" in the Wehrmacht / Heer, later promoted to "Unteroffizier", also in the Wehrmacht / Heer.

There is a Wikipedia article about Ambalal Sarabhai, as well as his photo at the entry to his residency - The Retreat.

Nr. 2 (probably...) Heinrich Martin, called "Hein" Martin (* August 15, 1890 in St. Ingbert; † March 31, 1968) was a German banker.
From the 1920s, Martin lived as a banker in Munich, where he became a partner and commander, or from 1939 sole owner, of the private banking firm Martin & Co. located at Fürstenstrasse 1. Among other things, he was financial advisor to the former Bavarian royal family and to the NSDAP politician Gregor Strasser. With an entry date of February 1, 1932, he was a member of the NSDAP (membership number 873,923), and from 1940 to 1945 he was also a member of the DAF. Martin's bank suffered a total loss on April 24, 1944. In 1945, he moved the headquarters of his bank to his apartment at Bavariaring 47.

Interesting little titbit on Walter Loeb (#6):

'Far beyond the borders of Thuringia, the Anti-Semitic agitation against the Weimar state bank
director Walter Loeb caused a public stir. He resigned from office in September 1924. He did
not receive any support from the government.
The minister of finance, Wilko von Klüchtzner (DNVP) had replied to Loeb’s question, “Am I
being dismissed, because I am Jewish?” with the words, “I consider the question of you being a
Jew less from the religious perspective but more from the racial side” '

A couple more! The two top cards were signed by members of Hitler's household staff at the Berghof c 1938
The postcard is from a friend or colleague of Wilhelm Brückner.
Any suggestions welcomed.
