You're welcome.

May I suggest sorting the names in your first post and write all in the same format, preferably "First Name Last Name" rather than using different formats?

Thanks for the work on this Kocjo, as you mentioned in our PM's and email! I will be making up my further revised list and will send you a few more names for your own listings, which you may post here. It has been a hard slog for me to identify the names of some recipients, specially searching out the details for the first special Himmler presentations, whose names I posted on the forum previously, in one of the articles cited.
Kind regards
Matt Gibbs
