Possible to receive Iron Cross 1st Class twice?

Post by kukifiho » 15 Jan 2021 04:40

Hello all. This might be a dumb question, and I’ve tried to google an answer but haven’t been particularly successful. More specifically, if a soldier received an Iron Cross 2nd and 1st class in WWI, would it have been possible for the same soldier to receive another Iron Cross 1st Class during WW2, does anyone know, please?

I'm not quite sure why you are asking. You asked this very same question on another forum on 12th December 2020 and got replies:
