List of EK recipients
A friend who is writing a book about the flee of Nazi oversea, is asking me if a list of recipients of the EK II exists.
I am extending this question to you, as I have no idea and through my searches on the web I could only find a list of the of "Knight's" EK recipients on wikipedia. But nothing more.
Thank you for your help!

There were so many EK I's and II's awarded that I would find it unlikely that there would be an inclusive list of recipients. Also, so many records were destroyed during and after the war that it would be virtually impossible to do.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
No there was no such list I'm afraid
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
It was very much a prized EK2
I'm looking for EK II 1939: B.H.Mayer: A and B core,mm L/18 and schinkel type ,,,EK1 Round-3 with Deschler frame and Friedrich Sedlatzek pin and SB variant
