Honor Guard at Moelders' Funeral

I am looking for the names of the eight members of the honor guard at Werner Moelders' funeral. I am certain that the following pilots were among the guard:

Adolf Galland
Wolfgang Falck
Guenther Luetzow
Johann Schalk
Karl-Gottfried Nordmann
Herbert Kaminski

I have also read that Oesau, Muencheberg and Assi Hahn were members of the honor guard; however, only two of them could have been (I am leaning toward Oesau and Muencheberg). Does anyone have any sources that definitively state who was in the honor guard? Please post your messages here or e-mail me directly at Feldpost@aol.com

Re: Honor Guard at Moelders' Funeral

In Werner Held's Fighter, the caption for a photo of Molders' funeral identifies Schnell, Priller, Hahn, and Streib in the front row of the cortege. Another photo caption identifies Schalk and Lutzow, and Galland is easily identifiable in a third.
