Thanks, 6 kills for a RK, so Hptm Bauer shot up at least 6 Soviet tanks. There seem to be several RKT’s with this name, but so far I can’t find any with the rank of Hauptmann.

Another example from the same book;
“the driver of the one-armed Hauptmann Schmeller....independently shot about a half-dozen Soviet yanks using panzerfaüste....received the knights cross”

From the 'traces of war' website:
Hauptmann Herman Bauer, Kommandeur Grenadier-Bataillon Belgard / Festung Schneidemühl.

No photo and no mention of any PVA awards.

From The Oder front 1945, vol.2’ (pps.166-167):
“According to SS-Untersturmführer Grabow.....I aimed and fired my Panzerfaust. My calculation proved right as my Panzerfaust struck home.”
