    Default Mutterkreuz award document- post-war?

    Hi guys,

    I came across this earlier. It has a facsimile of Hitler's signature. Take a look at the date, does this strike you as odd?

    I have seen a wound badge document that was used by a doctor in June of 1945 that was presented to a man who was recovering from his wounds. I am positive that the one I saw was legit. However Mother's Crosses seem like a strange thing to award after the war.

    Thoughts?

    They wouldn't have been awarded after the war but it is possible that these certificates were typed in anticipation of the award ceremony on Mother's Day which in 1945 would've been on 20th May.
    The end of the war and regime came before the ceremony took place.

    I think Adrian has nailed it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I think so too, nice one guy!

    Perhaps I'll get my mom these for Mother's Day.

    Interesting to see two different styles of certificate with the 1945 date. The one with the eagle would be the later style and used for the last couple of years of the war.
