Decorations of Generalrichter Dr. Karl Eckerle?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone please provide me with a list of the awards of Generalrichter Dr. Karl Eckerle, Chefreichter of 6th Luftflottenkommando at the end of the war? 

I know he was awarded the GCiS in May 1945, and presume he had the KvK 1 (but not sure if with or without swords), but I've been unable to find his other awards listed anywhere. 

Many thanks in advance for your help,

 I'm afraid I've not been able to find anything about his awards either online or in my books.

Have you attempted to check the personnel files at NARA to see if they have a copy of his?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
