Number of Knight's Crosses / unit

Post by Marcus » 03 Aug 2002 09:43

I have a list of the number of Knight's Crosses / unit for Waffen-SS units, but I'm looking for such lists in regard to Heer, Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine units too.
Does anyone have such a list?

Also of interest in similar list for other higher awards, such as German Cross or the Honor Roll Clasp.

Nice listing Jacek, but sorry I must dissagree with you as for NJGr 10 and NJG 11, as these pilots also flew with other gruppen and Nachtjagdgeschwader, and may well have been included in their listings. you did not mention RK's in NJG 5 or 6 ?

I know what Marcus is going to say.......why don't I come up with a listing......maybe I will ! It will take some time but it can get done.
Marcus do you just want RK or do you want names with higer forms....EL and S, Diamonds ?

The number of KC's in any units means number of pilots who were awarded KC exactly in time when they served in this units.

NJG 5 and NJG 6 - it's my mistake.

Marcus,
Looks in the file "awardsholders/unit" in the forum Third Reich,
you will find a beginning of response in the files which I sent (afflicted they are in French).
