Who is in the photo?

Dear All,
I have just stumbled upon the photo of a pilot decorated with a Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves. Unfortunately, his real name isn't indicated.
The site is mostly about fictional pilots (https://www.nationstates.net/nation=...book/id=147236), but the photos are real. For example, Hans-Joachim Marseille was both a real person and the photo is really a photo of him.
By contrast, 'Siegfried Freiherr von Richthofen' is actually Erbo von Kageneck and the photo of the fictional Prinz Alfred von Hohenzollern is one of Wilhelm Crinius.
Whose photo has been used as a photo of the fictional pilot Karl-Heinrich von Richter?
Thank you in advance. :-)

I do believe it's Hubertus Hitschhold, who was to become General der Schlachtflieger.

Thank you very much for your answer. In fact, I've never heard of Hubertus Hitschhold before. :-)
