Zerstörer pilots?

Hi,
I have had this photo in my collection for a long time and I still haven't been able to identify these three pilots.
Can someone please help me with identification?
They could be members of the Zerstörergeschwader.
Thank you very much for any information.
Regards Tony

Hello Tony. This photo shows 3 pilots of the Jagdgeschwader 2. In the middle with his glasses is Armin Ettling. Fred

Thank you Fred,
I compared the photos of Hptm.Ettling in the book: DANS LE CIEL DE FRANCE 39-40 (Mombeeck, Roba, Goss) with my photo. You're probably right.
The pilot on the right could be Lt.Hans Schmidt (also 7./JG 2) ????
Thank you again!
Regards Tony

Hi Tony,
For Hans Schmidt I don't know, I have no comparison.
On the left, however, I would say it's Lt. Erwin Biedermann.

Hi Fred,
Thank you for your reply.
I found only one photo of Lt. Erwin Biedermann, but I agree with you that it could be the same man.
Thank you very much again for your help.
with regards Tony
