This is very interesting. Can you come up with a list of all RK winners who served in the Bundeswehr? The first one tha tcomes to mind to me is Rudolf Witzig (Heer/Luftwaffe). He served the remainder of his career in the Army and rose to the rank of Colonel of Engineers.

Hello Ostpreussenmann:
The reference book by Clemens Range and Andreas Duefel " Die Ritterkreuztraeger der Bundeswehr", 2nd Edition of 2002 lists more than 700 (714) recipients who served as career members, in addition there were several who served in a civilian capacity. The last recipient left the service in 1984.
I had the pleasure several times to meet the later Admiral Kemnade ( S-Boats during the war) at my parents house after the war ( he was the boss of my father in the insurance business).
