Hitschhold was my first thought too. But it looks that this Hptm. has a Frontflugspange mit Anhänger (Front Flying Clasp with Pennant) and the German Cross. Hitsschhold didn't have either. Is there a Knights Cross with Oak Leaves visible?

Re: Info on Panzer Ace

Post by Rfcapt » 28 Nov 2020 07:34

Greetings All,

I am looking for info on Alfred Hargesheimer of 2./SS-Pa Rgt 2 "Das Reich"
Specifically, I am looking for things like:
Was he a knights cross winner?
How many tank kills did he have?
What awards did he receive?
Highest rank achieved?
And any other biographical info available.

Thanks in advance
RFCAPT

Hi,

for Alfred Hargesheimer are no entries for Knights Cross, German Cross in Gold or Ehrenblattspange in the literature. As an Untersturmführer he is probably in Moores Führerliste?

Regards
Alex
