Proposal arrived at HPA on 26.04.1945 and was handed over to the LPA on 30.04. ; there, the original proposal of the unit (Erstausfertigung) for Hengstler and Deutsch [Fsch.Stug.Brig 12] have been arrived already and LPA-VVs were prepared which were sent to the Adjutantur des Reichsmarschalls on 24.04.1945 (but Göring was arrested already) ; therefore General Meister himself made the award for Deutsch on 28.04. and rejected the one for Hengstler ; during this procedure it apparently happened that the proposal for Jungwirt wasn't treated in any way ; no confirmation to find in the files of the Bundesarchiv (Akte Jungwirt is incomplete , plundered completely) ; award accepted by OdR in accordance with so-called Dönitz-Erlass ; award date determined by Fellgiebel
