Udet Honor Guard Members

Can anyone identify these two members of Udet's honor guard? Is the officer at left possibly Walter Storp? If anyone has the answers, please e-mail me at Feldpost@aol.com or send me a PM. Thanks!

Barry

Re: Udet Honor Guard Members

The officer to the left looks like Gordon Gollob to me.

Thanks Paer, you are right. Gollob held the rank of Hauptmann at that time while Walter Storp was a Major. Could the other officer possibly be Storp?

Re: Udet Honor Guard Members

Okay, I found a source for who was supposed to be in Udet's honor guard (Dabid Irving, Die Tragoedie der Deutschen Luftwaffe, page 204): Galland, Oesau, Moelders, Luetzow, Hahn, Gollob, Dinort and Storp. We can rule out the officer at right being Galland, Moelders, Luetzow, Hahn, Gollob and Dinort. Thus, it is either Major Walter Storp or possibly the officer who subsituted for Werner Moelders. Does anyone know who substituted for Moelders?

Re: Udet Honor Guard Members

I just found another photo of Udet's honor guard that shows Major Walter Oesau among them - I am rather convinced that Oesau is the officer at right in the original photo I posted. I also have a feeling that Major Walter Storp replaced Moelders. It presumably would have been convenient for Goering to replace Moelders with Storp at that time, especially because Storp was serving at the R.L.M at that time.
