Very easy to find, with the right books :catjava:

MUCH easier (and quicker AND cheaper) than combing through the :speechless1: original lists

Note that the original roll has him as "Lotha." Even ORIGINAL sources have errors that must be corrected!

Ribbon #3 with the Xs only shows up after the Second War started. It is probably a KVK2X, but in the only portraits I've seen (so far :cheeky: ) it looks almost like a Silver grade Ostvolk award. His last ribbon is a 1939 Westwall Medal.
