    While the recpient's details are correct my opinion is that it is a fake. I don't like the style of the document or the stamp and the signature looks poor. For this period in time I believe it should be signed by Werner Eberhardt (Chef - Abteilung Allgemeine und Angelegenheiten der Seeoffiziere (MPA I) from Nov 1939 to Jan 1943) and having see an example of Eberhardt's signature the one on the citation doesn't match it at all.
    It would only take access to the Ordenstrager or one of various RK lists to determine the recipients details so that was probably the easiest part for the faker.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    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
