    68 Heer Gefrieter won the RK !! Certainly an award to this rank was for a single exceptional act of bravery on the Battlefield.

    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

    Looks like he was Pionier which might help to narrow it down.

    I have found 6 Pionier in the Ordensträger who had the rank of Gefreiter when they won the RK.

    Bauer Erhard - Gefreiter - 1./Pionier-Bataillon 102 / 102. Infanterie-Division - 04.10.44
    Roos Ferdinand - Gefreiter - 3./Pionier-Bataillon 6 / 6. Infanterie-Division - 16.08.43
    Schulz Heinrich - Gefreiter - 3./Pionier-Bataillon 161 / 61. Infanterie-Division - 18.10.41
    Treptau Max - Gefreiter - 3./Panzer-Pionier-Bataillon 86 / 9. Panzer-Division - 11.03.45
    Vehse Fritz - Gefreiter - 3./Pionier-Bataillon 342 / 342. Infanterie-Division - 04.10.44
    Zastrow Max - Gefreiter - 2./Pionier-Bataillon 81 / 45. Infanterie-Division - 06.03.44

    There may be a few more listed that belonged to Pionier Kompanies in Infantry Regiments etc but the ones shown are the only ones listed with actual Pionier Btls.

    Many thanks to all for your comments, and your help to identify him, apparently he has been identified on AHF as:
    Schulz, Heinrich
    Flammenwerferschütze 3./PiBtl 161
