    Default Help with a cross in gold winner

    I know it's probably a long shot, but i am seeking any information on Kapitänleutnant Johannes-Martin Döpner.
    Doepner was awarded the German Cross in gold on 9.9.1943. Kriegsmarine S boat commander. He was promoted to a Korvettenkapitän on 1.1.1945.

    I cannot for the life of me find out what unit he served with, or what he won his decoration for.

    Can anyone help, please

    I have a presentation album given to him by his crew mates, but it is devoid of any names or units?

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated..........Thanks

    I managed to get that far ade Thanks. Trouble is he is listed on the 3 flotila. But not commanding any s boats I can't find any pictures of him nor how he won his award. Frustrating!!

    I can't find him in the Lexikon der Wehrmacht either which is annoying.
