    I would say the photo is in Normandy and at the left talking to Rommel that is Admiral Theodore Kranche, Commander in chief of Navy Group Command West, headquarters were in Paris. Probably an inspection of Normandy defences, notice the building behind seems to have bricked up windows.

    I think you nailed it Anderson.
    Wikipedia has this image, same group, different angle.

    I found another photo, this one from the opposite end showing the half track and the building with the rings on the columns.... and a NOW comparison.

    Being a iron cross guy, I'm wondering if anyone has a close up of his awards?
    He seems to be wearing a ww1 Ek1 / ww2 1st class spange combo piece.
    Those attached combos are highly sought after.
