    I've no idea who this person is but he's obviously just got news he's been awarded the RK so his comrades have made a subsitute for him to wear while celebrating.......

    Adrian, I think that is the Grand Cross, wouldn't you agree?? A variant perhaps??

    General Otto von Knobelsdorf, 19th Panzer Division's Kommandeur standing with battalion kommandeur Major Walter Mecke, kommander of I./Panzer Regiment 27

    I think this was before Knobelsdorf was awarded the RK.... so before September of 41'. Major Walter Mecke was killed December 1, 1941...... only 8 days after being awarded his KC!!


    ** Either Mecke is standing on something, or he was one big guy! ( or Knoblesdorf was small)

    Great shot Adrian i love these impromtu made by the troops RK's , a shame we don't know who it is and there are no clues on the photo. The random peasant woman on the end is a nice touch as well !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Ritterkreuz verleihung. The only picture of an RK winner in my collection. There is no discription on the back unfortunately.

    Does anyone recognize him?
