Hi all !
on initiative of Drapeau Noir, Marcus, and Shawn, I would like to ask you for further help and participation in this thread. We thought it could be an interesting and demanding attempt to achieve an improvement and expansion of the existing recipients list on page 1.
Many thanks to Klemen, Matt and all other participants for a great result already since the start many years ago !
148 men are listed now. Based on the approximate number of awards - 1.650 (Bronze) , 510 (Silver) , 47 (Gold) - very many are missing. Therefore the re-newed request to provide new recipients you know of.
Another point is the incompleteness of data for recipients listed. Eventually some details like rank, date or unit is known in the meantime - if so, please post any additions to existing entries !
As you see the "master list" has got a new layout.
The holders are listed with : name , first name , award date , rank , unit
Details not known appear with "??" ; questionable holders or data sets rather incomplete are marked red. Especially filling those gaps would be fine !
If you would post new recipients in the above style this is very much appreciated, thanks !
Please provide a source ! Those possible BKA holders of whom only name and first name or name and rank is given anywhere will be listed for the time being for further research, or you might say put "on hold".
What is intended to be an improvement of the list is the expansion with a feature which could be called "notes". In short, all known and available additional info/data will be added to the recipients entry. There is a lot in this thread already, surely as well around the forum (links, etc.).
So, all things like -> certificate - Wehrpass - signer - source - mentioned... - bestowal - Kampftage - addtional info / explanations
, are planned as additions to the recipients basic data lines.
The addition of those features on page 1 has started already and will go on step-by-step. If you can provide such "plus adds" for new recipients this would be great !
Especially pics (men, docs) are a nice thing always. See the above post by Drapeau Noir !
It is intended to have a link with the recipients entry to allow to shift to the respective post with photos. Done for a few already.
So, bit long, sorry !
Thanks for your attention and thanks in advance for any contributions !
