A very nice photograph. The tall Stahlhelm member second from left in the first row is the former Crown Prince Wilhelm von Preußen (son of Kaiser Wilhelm II), with Röhm next to him and Himmler seen between them.
Scott, Love the 5. Pz. Div. Album. Some rare pics in there. Love the Trop Panzerman photo w/ Afrikan/Italian campaign medal worn and not just the ribbon!! Top photo for sure. Thanks for sharing.
