Hi Alex,

Not Fondernmann I am afraid -- as Henrici was Kmdr of 16 Inf Div (mot) not 16 Pz. 79 SchutzRgt was part of the latter, not the former. Looking from the snow, it must be late autumn or early winter. Henrici was kmdr of 16 Mot Div in winter of 41 and 42. The RKT that fit the bill was http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de/index_sea ... hword=vial, Obst Alexander Vial.

Cheers

Thanks, Herbert. The on-line auction sites are full of RKT images without identification.
