Feldwebel Johann Dorner won the DKiG on 16th August 1943 while serving with 3.(H)/Aufklärungsgruppe 21. The Feldpost number matches the unit (Nahaufklarungs-Staffel 3 (H) 21).

Thanks
The name fits with what I found - always good to check yourself :)

Thanks for the extra info on the date.

Will have to see if I can find additional info, and possibly a picture.
