Biography

Awards:
x?: Deutsches Reichssportabzeichen in Bronze;
December 15th, 1940: Beobachter Abzeichen in Silver.

According to some sources, Jacob Lobmeyer was awarded the Ritterkreuz des Eisrenen Kreuzes as Kommandeur SS-Jagdpanzer-Abteilung 561 with the rank of SS-Hauptsturmführer, on April 28th, 1945 for actions in Berlin. This awarding however is unconfirmed by any formal evidence.
There are two possibilities it was a legal award: - via a proposal on official channels to Chef HPA Burgdorf, - direct award by Hitler; unfortunately no proof in the Bundesarchiv files; insight into the files of the Ordenskommission OdR was denied due to the Bundesarchivgesetz restrictions (30 year-rule -> open 2019); case was treated by the OdR before 1973; award date by Krätschmer : "20.04.1945" ; remark by von Seemen : "bestowal based on radio message by K.G. V. SS-AK Jeckeln".

According to a document he also won de DKiG on 15-3-1945.
