Das Motiv aus der nationalsozialistischen Propaganda zeigt eine Kampfgruppe der deutschen Wehrmacht aus dem Kampfgebiet Demjansk zu Besuch in Potsdam,​ wo den Soldaten die Originalflöte Friedrich des Großen präsentiert wird, aufgenommen im Mai 1943.

Hi! I own this 57er stickpin from a soldier with 7 panzer kills (one gold and two silver badges), I can't find the one with the exact matching awards grouping (Army honor Roll, 7 Panzer kills) please help me to find the name of this brave soldier, I'd checked the 4 known holders of the 7 kills but no one match the awards shown in the stickpin:

Obergefreiter Stützle, Nepomuk
Oberfeldwebel Ottmar Bruttel
Leutenant ANDING, Friedrich
Unteroffizier Josef Fink


Thanks in advance for any help

Nacho

Do you have a photograph of Gerhard Konopka taken in 1996 shortly before his passing away on January 1997? Clean Shaven face. Medal stickpin.
