Please help Gregg and me resolve this old mystery. This photo shows an unknown admiral in Norway. With back to the camera is Hans Rose.
There are three possibilities:
1) He is Wilhelm Canaris (Gregg). See 2nd photo below for a comparison with Canaris.
2) He is Waldemar Bender (me). See 3rd photo below for a comparison with Bender.
3) He is someone else entirely.
Please share your opinions, the more the better.

Friedrich Fromm is saluting and I think von Bock is the general holding his hands in front of him. Any ideas on the other two generals standing here? Berlin 1940.

Not von Bock! Maybe Paulus on the right.

Far right is Generalleutnant Ernst Seifert, not Paulus.

If that is Seifert, I wonder if the general next to him is Hermann Hoth.
