    Hi Dan, bear in mind, the award could also be given to German Nationals serving with Eastern units.

    Also, how long would it take for a member of the former "Eastern Peoples" ( for that is whom the award was to be given to ) to ascend to the rank of Oberleutnant in the German artillery?????
    Dan many German Officers and SNCO's were attached to the Eastern units as the Germans didn't consider that the original Officers etc were up to standard.

    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

    Thanks Ade and Paul for clearing that up! I thought the award only went one way ...

    Hello,

    After reviewing an older thread the concensus of the collecting world is that the highlighted eagle is an original. There is enough difference between the eagles that I posted and the highlighted one.
