Very interesting picture. Of course because named, but he is wearing the SC on the wrong side, and he doesn't wear his LC Pz Badge that he got during his turn in Spain . Do you want I move the second one into this thread ?

Hi Jaques. Wonderful fotos. I am surprised with the number of SC's on those uniforms and struck by the fact that not one of them has a LC PAB!

Oops I followed the thread what appeared to me as Spanish Cross Fots...looking again I see it appears to be dedicated to panzer troops.

Remove please if inappropriate.

...I think he is wearing the SC on the wrong site only for the photo. He has never received the LC Pz Badge, because Karl Wald was assigned as as a car - driver (among others for Admiral Canaris), Pz.Rgt 5 in this time. Yes, please move the other (Karl Wald here Pz.Rgt. 8) picture in this thread...

Here a pic of Karl Wald "at work" in Africa, El Alamain (Tank Commander of a type IV tank):

For Matthias.

Karl WALD is listed in "Los hombres de von Thoma" , from april 01, 1938 to May 31, 1939 as part of the Staff of the Pz.Gruppe Drohne.

Well,

I will ask if von Thoma received the SC in gold with diamonds? :speechless:

I hope to see a close pic of him wearing his SC one of these days. I 'm sure one is sleeping in a collection !

Excellent photos, Jacques, thanks for posting. Did the award of the WWII version of the Panzerkampabzeichen rule out the wear of the unique badge worn by von Thoma's panzer troops?

No, I think he entitled to wear both badges. I never saw war period pics of him showing his badges.

unknown in black uniform. This soldier is also pictured in Bender's book in Spain with the black beret.
