    Steve - Great signed portrait/painting! That's really neat that he added the RK himself too! That would be cool if you could find who owns the other photo to possibly add to your grouping
    Thanks Bill.......unfortunately Pohl's TR and 1957 awards and photo album were sold at an auction house in Germany in September of this year....then sadly as is often the case, some one began to split the set on E-Bay,I won his 57er awards, his TR awards never appeared (where they are i do not know !) and I lost out on the photo album....but I downloaded the images prior to its sale, so I have them on my data base ! I shall be doing a thread on Pohl in the near future, and will despite not having permission, I will post the album images, in order to flush out an owner to either credit him/her with ownership and attempt to obtain said album and begin to reunite the group............lets see what happens.
    Strangely Pohl's RK has not surfaced to date, and was not part of the auction lot in Germany, I have correspondence from Pohl, stating that he "disassembled" the cross and sent it home in 1945 with a returning POW, he himself returned in 1954.
    Does his family still have it ?
    Here is the auction lot followed by his items in my collection....if anyone can help locate further Pohl items I would be most grateful.
    Prost ! Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    Oh wow, what a grouping. The 57er set is fantastic!! Glad you got those. And I agree, sounds like the family might still have the RK.....as it probably would have popped up somewhere by now. Interesting that he disassembled it for sending too! Looking forward to the thread Steve, good idea.


    Lengies, I know, I wonder if the guys at AHF might be able to help. Some of them are great at IDing RKTs there.

    I think the soldier awarded with KC is Baptist Kupfer.

    Hello to all,
    When I first saw this few fotos from Langies I searched through may PC and books and labeled him as Baptist Kupfer. Than a couple of weeks ago the same foto was posted on Axis History Forum and a member ''Docarchiv'' had the same opinion.
    In addition to those fotos I have one foto of Baptist Kupfer from Scherzers DVD and one from KAI Winkler site.
    He is also listed in the book Ritterkreuzträger im Mannschaftsstand 1941-1945 with one foto - nearly the same as from Scherzers DVD but with larger view.

    Langies, I'm not able to post pictures but you can send me your mail address and I will send the fotos.
