Many of these men from a DH & PG group photo would have been present at the retirement gathering for Kurt Hufnagel in 1911 when the card was presented. This image from Motuihe Island in July 1917 is one of the few good quality group shots that exist of company staff. There are probably good images that were sent to the head office in Hamburg that now reside in German archives but none appear to be available for viewing on-line.
The people are (left-to-right): George Lober (Samoa), Alfred Schultz (Tonga), Karl Bunge (Samoa), Karl Hanssen (Samoa), Adolf Eberhardt (Samoa), Emil Hellfritz (Tonga), Reinhold Hofmann (Samoa), Ernst Studt (Samoa), Paul Voget (Samoa), H.Cassebaum (Samoa), Adolf Ohle (Tonga).
