I think you guys will like this one -- since it is "unit specific" and also a larger format.

No interest anymore in thinking a bit ? :unsure:

Hello,

@ Simon : " Signed by Erich Z?hr, RK, DKiG. " => exactly !!!!!

And funny thing on Major Erich Z?hr is => he never seemed to have received the Honour Goblet ?

DKiG : 19.03.1942 - as a Hauptmann

KC : 23.12.1942 - as a Major

The KC was awarded for the efforts of the KGzbV 172 in Russia during the hard winter months january towards mid 1942.

And now lets break our heads over the unit mix up :P

Cordial greetings,

Hello,

Here is a ratehr mixed one, the soldier Uffz. B (still alive today - 95 years old) was a trained glider pilot who did see quite some action. I did get this document togheter with a few otehr documents in 2005 directly from the former soldier.

When the glider units where disbanded in september 1944 he was attached as a volunteer towards the F.B.D. :speechless1: where he was wounded on 01.04.1945.

So a Luftwaffe soldier with a Heer unit.

Cordial greetings,
