Can you ID this Luiftwaffe Officer?
This foto is from a US vet's album. He incorrectly labeled the Luftwaffe Officer as Rommel. I have seen this same mistake made before - with the same Luftwaffe Officer, in the same foto.. I guess anybody wearing a greatcoat & a RK looks like Rommel to the unknowing. I was wondering if anybody recognizes this Luftwaffe Officer? This foto was widely distributed, I guess. Thanks.

I have seen that album, it hasn't come from a US vet, it was a British one, and half the photos in it are copies
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
