    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    No, sadly this information is lost.

    However it is possible to know if some recieved the EKI if you have their Soldbuch (Paybook) or the paper citation which came with the award.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Stuey and welcome.
    As Ade says, unfortunately there is no way of being able to find out all individual awards of the EK1 and EK2, the lists simply don't exist. Do you have a particular reason for wanting to know?

    Well its more Or less my great great grandfather received either an ek1 or 2 as a cavalry captain, and after his family fled Prussia after ww2 all certificates and records of my family being German citizens have been lost. I would have thought finding his name would help my family prove that they were.. Or maybe not I dunno

    If he received the EK1 he definitely would've been awarded the EK2 as well because you had to have the latter to have the former. I'm guessing as he is your Great Great Grandfather we're talking First World War?
