Hello
I will update the list before the end of this week with all the interesting information posted by our generous contributors.
I will also try to give an exhaustive list of all OL holders (Eichenlaubträger) who have not been assigned to a specific ceremony yet.

I attached a link to a thread posted by Dieter showing the Bonk - Wegerer ceremony (hope that works).

Thank you all
Denis

Hi, bake!

Sorry, no pic about Blaskowitz. My source: "Die Ritterkreuzträgerder Deutschen Wehrmacht 1939 - 1945", (Biblio, Osnabrück). By the way:

31/01/43, FHQ, Wolfsschanze
KM ceremony
- Korvettenkapitän Merten (147. EL)
- Kapitänleutnant Lüth (142. EL)
- Kapitänleutnant Guggenberger (171. EL)
- Kapitänleutnant Töniges (143. EL)

Don´t worry. Tomorrow, I will send you a pic of this ceremony, ok?

My best regards,

Pedro.
