According to other sources (f.i. von Seemen) the RK was awarded on 19th April 1945.
According to Scherzer the proposal arrived at HPA on 19.04.1945, there is no Karteikarte ; noted down in the book "Verliehene Ritterkreuze" by Major Domaschk : "RK ja". No further handling, case was treated by the OdR Ordenskommission in 1973, it was decided "Yes". It isn't known how this judgment was backed up with any proofs, insight to the files of the OdR wasn't allowed to author Veit Scherzer due to the Bundesarchivgesetz rules (that is : files closed 30 years after death -> open here : 2018). From the point of view of the OdR the award is correct according to the so-called "Döntitz-Erlass", award date determined by the OdR.
