Hello guys
bake, thanks for adding new info, I appreciate.
Yesterday, I have found a new pic (alas, I can't post it for the moment, but tomorrow it will be done) from the following ceremony (quoted from my last update) :

"After 24/06/44, location unknown
LW ceremony
From left to right :
- unidentified (to be confirmed) : there is seemingly a sleeve which can be seen near Hartmann's one : see luft_EL_1.jpg
in the related thread posted by Freiherr)
- Lt. Erich Hartmann (420. EL) : might it be possible that Hartmann was there to be awarded the Schwerter ? This would be the only possiblity coming to my mind to explain why he is before Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer. If so, the date would be included between 02/07/44 (Hartmann's Schwerter) and 30/07/44 (Schnaufer's ones).
- Hptm. Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer (507. EL)
- Major Horst Kaubisch (505. EL)
- Hptm. Eduard Skrzipek (509. EL)
- Lt. Adolf Glunz (508. EL) "

On the photo I have seen, the soldier that I mention before Hartmann was clearly shown : this was Friedrich Lang who was attended the ceremony to receive his Schwerter (74th).
Given the date which was provided by Oberstab and my source (ie botth 02/08/44), I wonder whether Schaufer was there to receive the OL (507th on 24/06/44) or the Swords (84th on 30/07/44) ? I would say both awards, given the short range of time between the 2 bestowal dates. However, I would really like to have members' opinion about that latter point : EL, Schwertern or both ? Anyway, we have not found any other photo showing Schnaufer in another ceremony so far.
The other point was the photo caption :if my memory serves me, this caption mentioned Josef Fitz in the row. I don't remember exactly where he was, except this was after Schnaufer. i will study this matter this evening and will post the photo tomorrow. I will also have a look in the Biblio book dealing with RKT from Infantry in the Fitz entry (he was awarded the RK as a heer member), hoping that a photo of this ceremony is possibly displayed.
AND I'LL DO MY BEST TO UPDATE THE LIST TOMORROW
Best regards
Denis

Hello guys

Here is the pic that I talked about.
In its caption, the guy just located after Schnaufer is identified as Josef Fitz. After looking closely, I think this is a mistake and this is well Horst Kaubisch.
Nobody has expressed any opinion about Schnaufer's awards (see my previous message).
Anyway, here is the full and revised entry :

02/08/44, FHQ
LW ceremony
From left to right :
- Major Friedrich Lang (74. Schw.)
- Obt. Erich Hartmann (75. Schw.)
- Hptm. Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer (507. EL AND/OR 84. Schw.)
- Major Horst Kaubisch (505. EL)
- Hptm. Eduard Skrzipek (509. EL)
- Lt. Adolf Glunz (508. EL)

Regards
Denis

Hello friends,

Some new data have been included. Thanks again to all people who take time to find new information about this matter.
Please note that if the date is unknown, I have inserted the latest bestowal date for all the present recipients. I have sorted the data by date. New elements are clearly identified by a caption in bold.
Please also note that I have inserted in the text all entries related to individuals (and who were previously listed at the end of the list). Should a photo prove that they belong to a group ceremony, the entry would be updated accordingly.
