III/KG 53

Post by Starinov » 14 Sep 2003 18:59

To whom it may come, Greetings:

Does anybody know what was the emblem and if there were any Knight Cross holders within that unit? I am asking this question because a friend of mine is making a scale model of a Heinkel 111 from that unit. He is trying to set a time around winter 1942/43.

Thank you for your help.

Name - Name
TSK - Luftwaffe/Heer/Kriegsmarine/Waffen-SS (branch of armed forces - here LW)
Einheit: Unit
Verl.-Dat.: date of awarding (something like this - the day when the man received RK)

Is this what were you looking for?
