    Ive tried many times to Id People in these photos! I'm on the understanding its 36 inf Div.

    One guy I may have Put a name to is Lindemann, Guy in bottom photo with missing left arm? He was In Command of this Unit at the time of the Photos were taken, Just before Otto Ottenbacher took over.

    36 inf Div----If I'm right) Was Destroyed in Stalingrad. Luckily, My Man was Transferd to another Division late 1940
