    Agreed. He appears to be wearing the same coat here.

    Got this one a few minutes ago. Figured I would post it. I havent really looked at it too thoroughly yet. Looks like one on right might be wearing glasses or eye glass etc.

    The man on the left looks like he has a Feldmarschalls Baton. His greyish white hair makes me think of Von Manstein

    I think it could be Werner Von Blomberg. It looks alot like him, and very similar medals

    Yes; it's Werner von Blomberg. The other general (2nd from right) is Werner von Fritsch.
    Compare to this image of von Blomberg, von Fritsch and Raeder...:

    ...or this one of von Rundstedt, von Fritsch and von Blomberg:

    Very nice HPL!! I should have thought of Fritsch to be with Blomberg!! I cant believe I didnt think of that! They were accused of messing around together, but were found to be only close friends.

    So the photo had to be before 1939, since Fritsch died in September. I wonder where they were?

    Hmmm.... If you squint, no pun intended, he appears to be wearing a monocle in his right eye. The mouth with the slight down turn and jowls, as well as his age, height and build make me think that it COULD be Walter von Reichenau. But it's only a guess!!
