Beside Grossadmiral Erich Raeder there is Admiral z.V. Eugen Lindau ( Marinebefehlshaber Westfrankreich ) and Konteradmiral Ernst Schirlitz
( SeeKo Bretagne ) at that time, during a visit at the Kriegsmarine radarpost at Rospect ( Pointe de Mathieu ) , the round building from stone for the protection of the Fu.M.O. 2 Calais is still there . ( A.C. and Ebay )

Raeder visited Brest on 5 August 1942. So I guess these photos were also taken around the same time.
