The DKiG in cloth of Major Adolf Mugge.

Recommended Posts

This is the cloth German Cross in gold of Major Adolf Mugge. Since acquiring this cross I have found out the following information on Major Mugge.

Born 01.16.1907,

DKig Mügge,Adolf, 08.11.1943, /Gren Major, I..Rgt. 590

Major Mugge Army Honor roll 27.071944.11./Gren.Rgt 1057

Sadly Major Mugge did not survive the war, I have not found out the circumstances of his death but I know he is buried in the Wehl Cemetery near Hameln Germany which is appropriate for me as I kept pet rats for 20 years(Pied Piper).I want to travel to visit his grave at some point and have donated to the German war graves commission in memory of all the brave men who died fighting for their country.The cloth cross has lost or never had the twisted bullion thread around the wreath but has that well known Junker wreath with the die flaw on the 9.I have also found there are enough unique variations to determine it is the cross in the photograph and not from his other uniform.I would appreciate any further information on Major Mugge.

Hi,

It would be Muegge, an "Ü" is "UE" .... so he is Moogge (but a short "oo" as if the Monty Python "Knights who say NI!" were to say Moo... )

Best
