    Certainly not a Grave marker, I suspect he has just received official notice that he's been awarded the Knight's Cross, and this is a memento from his company as part of the celebration...

    Would agree with Glenn. He already has the EK2, EK1 and DKiG.....so next up is the KC!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    That KC must be made of some substantially heavy material due to the fact it has a decent size linked chain going around his neck.

    I'm thinking it's likely made from wood and painted by the man's company or buddies for some deed that they or He thinks he should certainly be given the RK for. I wonder if he ever did?
