Rank:
Oberwachtmeister
Unit:
Heeres-Sturmgeschütz-Brigade 236, Heer
Awarded on:
April 20th, 1945
Details:
He is not mentioned in Patzwall / Scherzer.
Belongs to a group of soldiers who have "credibly proven" ("glaubhaft nachgewiesen") to have been awarded the decoration. The "Nachauflage" (1992) [addendum/2nd ed.] of the book by Horst Scheibert lists 50 recipients like that. 11 of them have been listed in the new standard work by Patzwall/Scherzer (2001,2003,2007) in the meatime and therefore this soldier can be regarded as confirmed "credibly proven" per Scheibert.
