Verwundetenabzeichen, 20.07.1944

Postby Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 12 Oct 2017 17:03

Is it true that Vizeadmiral Hans-Erich Voß recieved all three of the Verwundetenabzeichen, 20.07.1944? In Black, Silver and Gold?

On english Wikipedia it says: "He became a recipient of the Wound Badge of 20 July 1944. Initially his award class was presented in black but then it was upgraded to silver and finally gold because he was wounded a number of times after the initial award. Voss was the only member of the Wehrmacht to have received all three badges".

This sentence has no citations so I want to check if it's true? And I know Wikipedia isn't the most realiable source.

Thanks.

Thanks graveland. But this only confirms the Verwundetenabzeichen, 20.07.1944 in Schwarz. Did he recieve the Silber and Gold badges too?
