RK still alive winners list!!

Post by Spirow Ewes » 19 Sep 2006 19:06

Where can I find an updated list of Ritterkreuz winners that are still alive? I really need it.

The thing is: next month there´s going to take place in Germany two reunions: one of the Luftwaffe pilots and other of Knight´s Cross winners. A friend of mine is going but he doesn´t know the veterans that will be there, and I´m going to send some photos with him to be autographed.

That´s why I want to know who´s still alive and goes to this kind of reunion, so I can send the appropriate photos.

any help will be most welcome!

Thanks in advance,

It is a sad note that Gerhard Thyben has passed away. Great fighter ace!

To Spirrow Ewes: if you intend to get signed pictures, personally I think that e-bay is a good source for postwar autographs.

What about Ernst-Wilhelm Reinert? I've heard that he passed about two years ago...

Reinert is alive as far as I know although in poor health.
Trettner has died few weeks ago. See: http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de/index_sea ... wert1=6609

You subject is "Georg Bose", but I don't know the reason and the sense of your post. Can you explain your post?

Thanks in advance,

Hello!
Maj Ruef, from III/Gebirgsjäger-Regiment 143 (6 Gebirgsdivision) got the RK in 1944, and he is still alive.
