Hello Ruslan et al!

Heinz Schweizer was one of the very few Feuerwerker who recieved the RK for working with Bomb disposal of Blindgänger bombs. He was a Hauptmann (W) (Kr.O.) when he recieved the RK on 28.06.1943 while commanding Spreng-Kommando d. LW I/VI in Ratingen/Düsseldorf.

Thanks for the IDs John!
How about these ones? A KM ( http://sammler.ru ) and a Waffen-SS ( http://eestileegion.com ).

Hard to say. Müller RKT 5.42, Richthofen Kmdr VIII Fl Copr before june 42 and Kmdr LuftFl4 after that. KG 76 moved with Richthofen, I think.

There is only so much you can retain in your head. Some Luftwaffe expert can coreect me.

Cheers
Freiherr
