Does anyone know of or have a document/photo regarding Herr Sieckneius and a German cross? I have looked for a long time and cannot find anything about Sieckneius being awarded a German cross. The reason I ask is because I have a Panzer Oberst's tunic from the 2nd regiment that I believe to be Sieckneius's, however it has an award loop on the left facing breast pocket where a Deutsche Kreuz in Gold would go. He was awarded the Panzerkampf Abzeichen in silver, the silver wound badge and the EKI with spange, so the right facing breast is explained. Sieckneius was with the 2nd panzer regiment during 1941-43 making the Eastern front ribbon correct. Finally, I saw a picture of him from 1938 that shows 6-8 ribbon bars on his tunic. This takes care of the large space between the loops above the right facing pocket. It all appears to check out, other than the DKIG! Any information? Thanks.
