  3. A citation type that has many variations are those for the KvK & KvM and are also a great resource for signatures. Feel free to show any that you have. I will get the ball rollong with the following examples... The first is for the KvK II Kl mit Schwertern and awarded to a member of a RAD unit and it bears the signature of Generalfeldmarschall von Kluge. The second is also for the KvK II Kl mit Schwertern and awarded to a soldier in a transport unit in Greece (1941) and it also bears the signature of a Generalfeldmarschall, in this case Wilhelm List.

  8. There are many variants of citations for Sports Awards from the more formal German Horseman's & SA Sports Badge to the less formal unit-level sports day certificates. Here is an example of the latter for a member of 52 ID and signed by Lothar Rendulic and also the soldiers booklet/citation for the Deutsches-Reichs-Sportsabzeichen in Bronze...

  16. Based purely on the initials (I'm no good at recognising faces) it could be Hans-Georg Borck who won the RK on 23rd November 1943 in 3./Pz.Pi.Btl 209 of 11.Pz.Division. He won the DKiG with the same unit in March 1943. The Waffenfarbe in the photo does look black which would fit with a Pionier unit.

  23. That would make more sense.
  24. Is there any chance of a higher resolution scan of just the cuff title area? Can't say I've seen one like that - is it ST, SG or GG and then -P.....?
