I was wondering. How did the procedure and everything work when a soldier was awarded the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross? Take for example a Luftwaffe fighter pilot at the front. Would he recieve leave and return to Germany to be awarded the medal by Hitler? How would the procedure go and how would the recipient experience this?
Thanks in advance
