Oak Leaves to the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross of Vizeadmiral August Thiele

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 09 Nov 2018 15:58

When was Thiele awarded the Oak Leaves to his Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross?
Scherzer and Fellgiebel give the date as 14 April 1945. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_Thiele
Hildebrand/Henriot give the date as 08 April 1945.
Which one is correct?
Thanks

You can trust https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_der ... en_Kreuzes
This is based on the work of Veit Scherzer, who has done the most thorough research and has developed this standard.
