Pretty stupid faker in Germany: Imperial: Rick (Research) Lundstrom Forum for Documentation and Photographs Posted May 25 Hi all, It mentions his Hohenzollern being awarded before his EKI. Are there any cases where this was known to happen? I know that there are a few examples of the Pour le Merite being awarded without the prior bestowal of the Hohenzollern (Erwin Rommel was one such example) but the Hohenzollern before the EKI ???
