Kapitan z. S. Wolf Junge's Awards

Post by Edward L. Hsiao » 28 Jan 2022 18:39

Gentlemen,

Did Wolf Junge born in 1903 won any foreign decorations during his service career with the Kriegsmarine? I know Junge won the German Cross in Gold while as commanding officer of the battleship Tirpitz. It was said that Junge was unpopular with the men that served under him. Got a picture of Wolf Junge?

Thank you for the picture of Wolf Junge. I can see that he was a full commander in rank and have not been awarded the German Cross in Gold yet.

Hello,

About which Wolf Junge are you talking about? The Wolf Junge that was the last Captn of Tirpitz before she was sunk?

If yes, the man on the photo is not the correct Wolf Junge.

Wolf Junge was my grand grand father and He looked different to what I see on the photo.

Regards

Thomas

To Thomas87

Yes I'm talking about the Wolf Junge that was captain of the battleship Tirpitz. I'm wondering about what foreign decorations that Wolf Junge have while serving with the Kriegsmarine.
