132 U-boat commanders received the Deutsche Kreuz in Gold, but 4 of them have received for previously services in the Luftwaffe.
Who were they?

Hi
The DKIG question is easy to answer if you have the Biography book!
Nearly all the info you have just given in your answer is not on any U-boat sites that I have access to.
