Hofmann, Edwin, 02.05.1945, Leutnant, VB i. d. II./Art.Rgt. 171
[Not confirmed finally from a legal point of view but most probably officially awarded. Researched and published in 2007 by author Veit Scherzer; "Vorläufiges Besitzzeugnis" existing but unknown if it was handed out to Hofmann]
I recently discovered in my collection his Clasp, the Vorshalag for the Clasp and the Award Document dated 2 May 1945
I posted them on the Wehrmacht Forum
Jánis Dzenis was no Waffen-Oberscharführer anymore when he received the Honor Roll Clasp of the Heer(or Waffen-SS)on 05-02-1945.
He was promoted to Waffen-Untersturmführer on 30.01.1945.

I miss next winner of the DKiG in the 99. leichte Infanterie-Division:
Schuler, Emil; 2-11-1941; Major; Inf.Rgt. 218
I wonder if it could be Jäger-Regiment 218 instead of Infanterie-Regiment 218. The Inf.Rgt. 218 changed to Jäg.Rgt. 218 the 10-10-1941, and Jäg.Rgt. 218 changed to Geb.Jäg.Rgt. 218 the 15-11-1941.
