    Been a long time coming, but the mystery is Solved! Great researching! Looks like the guy was actually Promoted to major and awarded the Ritter Cross Posthumously!

    I'm very happy you found the DK's owner you must be very elated, indeed. Great to put a face and name to an item as this. Are the others all from the same site and/or man? Is it possible to get some more images of the set? I'm sure we would all like to see these up close and straight on Thanks for sharing this great story with us, Chris.

    will see if I can find one for you chris.
    Good research nice grouping of items on this pilot will display well.
    It is very hard to put a face with a medal but you have done it.
    Most of this medals the recipient have been lost to history
