    Dave, according to Gotha: Günther Edmund Wilhelm Freiherr von Hammerstein-Equord ... you don't happen to have a picture? Did he possibly receive the KVK in WWII?

    Thanks. Werner was an error.


    No personnel file in the archives, so I have no picture and no idea about any WW2 awards. Since he was not a front officer I seriously doubt he had the Spangen to the EK1&2, so I would think the KVK2X&1X were prerequisites for his DKiS. I do not think a 1914 EK1 was sufficient to get the DKiS; you needed either a 1939 EK1 (or Spange) or a 1939 KVK1X.
