Later Kult received the Oakleaves on March 15th, 1943 as Oberleutnant der Reserve, Chef, 3. Kompanie, I. Bataillon, Jäger-Regiment 228, 101. Jäger-Division for on February 22nd and 23rd, 1943 the Bolsheviks attacked the Kuban bridgehead with strong forces and were in a position to infiltrate into the German positions at a number of locations.
