    Default Inside Wolf's Lair

    Hi All

    Have a soft spot for German Combat award, Documents, However could not let this pass when it came onto the Market a while back.

    Original Photo, Taken from the Wolf's Lair 5, Sept 1944. Reverse shows, Over seas stamp. Intended to promote Hitlers good health after the July 20th plot. Hitler arrived on the night of 21 June 1941, and departed for the last time on 20 November 1944. He spent over 800 days there, off and on, during World War II.

    Hitler Awarding CCCIG To 9 Brave men, Think im Correct in saying he only ever Awarded 14 men with this Award. on to different occasions.

    This Photo comes from the same Reel of Film, Used in the photos which feature in Manfred Dorr book. Page 26.

    Nice thing about this photo is part from Bruno Hinz they are all NCO's , Franz Richter the RKT was an Obergefreiter who also had the DKiG, how much combat have some of these guys seen !!

    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

    Back of Photo Phil!

    Was surprised that none of them appear to be wearing DKIG! Maybe this was Given to them after the Award? Working on the Understanding the DKIG Was automatically Awarded with the CCCIG. Could be wrong I'm out side my Field of interest now!

    Like you say Paul, Hard Fighting Men

    Certainly in many cases a DKiG was awarded with the Goldene Nahkampfspange but not in all cases , i'm not sure why, DF RKT Sepp Lainer was awarded the NKSiG but not the DKiG !!
