    Default KC and other award holders after the war

    Having met a rather large number, thought some photos of veterans after the war might be of interest.

    Top left are Fritz Langanke (left) and Ernst Barkmann, both Panzer Regiment "Das Reich" KC and best friends after the war till they passed away. Langanke was of GREAT help in my research and Barkmann wrote the Foreword for one of my SS/Polizei German Cross holder volumes.

    To right is Henz Macher (Oakleaves) with Heinz Harmel (right) and between them is Frau Harmel.

    Bottom seated left is Karl Kreutz (Oakleaves and German Crioss in Gold, Artillerie Regiment commander "Das Reich" and twice temporary division commander) speaking to Hans Hauser (KC as Kdr I./Der Führer). Seen partly behind them in gray suit is Otto Weidinger (commander Regiment "Der Führer" and Swords holder).

    Have others I took postwar, normally at a Treffen or their homes, if of interest.

    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

    When 4 Swords holders were there was one of the wilder weekends that Treffen

    Sorry, no I did not meet Carius. Only Waffen-SS, Luftwaffe, US, and British personalities.
