mage text:
Das Motiv aus der nationalsozialistischen Propaganda zeigt Oberleutnant Kurt Bauer der deutschen Wehrmacht mit Deutschem Kreuz, Infanterie-Sturmabzeic​hen, Eisernem Kreuz und Nahkampfspange, aufgenommen im November 1944. Die nationalsozialistische Berichterstattung schreibt am 10.11.1944 auf der Rück​seite des Bildes: "Dreimal das 'Goldene'. Oberleutnant Kurt Bauer aus Stöcken bei Werdau, Kompaniechef einer thüringischen Infanterie-Division, trägt ​das Deutsche Kreuz in Gold, das goldene Verwundetenabzeichen und erhielt jetzt die Bestätigung für die Goldene Nahkampfspange."

Also according to Gordon Williamson: "I had some correspondence some years back with former SS-Hauptsturmführer Jakob Lobmeyer. As some of you will know, these guys often have a short "Lebenslauf" made up that they can give out to people who express interest or ask for photos etc. Amongst the awards was the Golden Tank Destruction Badge."

In the book ‘the Oder front 1945 vol 2’ (p.370), “Lobmeyer claimed to have knocked out 4 x T34 using Panzerfäuste alone”. This is part of the total claims for SS-Jagdpanzer-Abt. 561 between 24th January and 9th May 1945.

Thanks, I hadn’t seen Gordon’s previous post where Lobmeyer claimed a PVAiG, I’m sure that this is perfectly feasible. From the ‘Traces of war’ website, it states that the awards for Lobmeyer are not all supported and/or documented (see below), including his NKSiG EL And even his RK. However, they do show an undated photo of him wearing his RK.
Unfortunately, in the haze of the last months of the war, anything is possible and the question of whether or not he officially received these awards is somewhat academic. He was certainly in the thick of the fighting and was probably eligible for most, if not all of these awards. The question being whether or not the administrative processes were still in place to confirm the awards.

From what I can remember, there was a Gauleiter who claimed that his daughter had ‘killed’ a Russian tank towards the end of the war. However, if you look at the age of his daughter, she was too young in 1945, so I think this was probably a lie.
There were HJ who knocked out tanks, and many HJ panzerknacker teams at the end of the war, so it’s highly likely that there are more than one HJ PVA’s. With that said, I’ve not come across any confirmed female or even non-military/HJ PVA winners, but would believe that there’s a high possibility that women/girls/civilians caught up in the maelstrom of the end of the war knocked out a tank or two.

Unteroffizier (and officer candidate) Günter L Ŭ M M A. Uffz Lŭmma was born on 10 August 1925 in Altöls, Niederschlesien.
He was mobilized with 3./Grenadier Ersatz u. Ausbildung Btl. 6 on 22 July 1943. He was awarded the EKII while assigned to 3./Gren Rgt 6 (30 Inf Div) on 9 Sep 44 for action during the Baltic withdrawal. In October 1944, Grenadier Regiment 6 was dissolved due to heavy losses and Uffz Lŭmma was transferred to 5./Pz. Gren. Rgt 112 (20 Pz Div). Uffz Lŭmma would earn the Tank Destruction Badge on 24 March 1945 for action against a Russian tank during the siege fighting at Breslau.
