How many DKiG Holders Were In The Bundeswehr?

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen,

How many DKiG and DKiS (German Crosses in Gold and Silver) holders approximately were in the Bundeswehr? I can't find a website that is dedicated for DKiG and DKiS Holders whose service were in the Wehrmacht and the Bundeswehr. I had to admit that I like the 1957 versions of the DKiG and DKiS better than the ones with the Swastika.

                                                                                                                                              Edward L. Hsiao

Gentlemen,

I guess will never know for sure about how many recipients of the DKiG and DKiS that joined the Bundeswehr. I kind of knew that these holders of the German Cross that were in the Bundeswehr outnumbered those who won the Knight's Cross that were in the Bundeswehr.

                                                                                        Sincerely,

                                                                                   Edward L. Hsiao

Like you say, how long is a piece of string?  I have seen lots of post war ribbon bars that indicate DKiG, I suppose one would never know unless you have access to BW records but given it is hard enough to access war time records then I think in the world of Data protection it will be doubley difficult?
