A pic of a non-KC holder by caraqchi71 has been deleted. The very same pic was requested in the TDB sticky here http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 5#p1324545
Of note : for DKiG in particular there is also this thread German Cross in Gold Holders Identification

Thank you very much gentlemen for your help.

Regarding the pic of Harmel, I could find the same pic on the Marcus Wendel's site. The men in the pic are from left to right:
Otto Paetsch, Heinz Harmel and Karl-Heinz Euling in 1945.

Good day, Dieter,

It's definitely not von der Heydte, he more looks like Ludwig Heilmann.
