    I want to start this thread to help anyone with identifying Kriegsmarine Admirals from photos. You may have seen similar threads on other forums.

    If you need help with unknown Admirals, please post them here. But, please stick to posting scans of photos you actually own.

    I am starting this thread in hope that members of the forum will share with us their private collection photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals.

    You can also post any photos of Kriegsmarine Admirals you have, that show already identified Admirals.

    I will start with some photos from my private collection.

    Konteradmiral Ernst Krafft (middle) and Fregattenkapitän z.V. Ernst Stever (right) in Paldiski, Estonia, year unknown.
    Krafft was the Coastal-Commander of the Eastern Baltic Sea and also Fortress-Commandant of Gotenhafen (27 June 1940-31 August 1942). He retired on 31 May 1943 but, on 7 April 1945 he fell into Russian captivity. He died in 1954 in Vladimir Prison in the Soviet Union, aged 69.

    I hope you will enjoy the many photos I post in the future. Make sure to open the photos in a new tab to see them in full size.

    Any thoughts to adding named admiral tunics to this thread to go with photos that would be neat and educational.

    Here are two photos of General Admiral Saalwächter that I have.
