Source Ebay.

I put this in this thread in the off chance someone can ID the poor quality RKV pic. Perhaps getting the general nailed down might give us a better chance

Alexspb , I think the man who's face is visible next to the head of Bittrich is Franz Hack.

On the KC of Franz SCHMITZ..
I have his actual AWARD document of the "action" he was in to be awarded the KC., along with his KC - one he actually wore with his friends after the War... I got it from a neighbor of his in Germany. Along with other items of his and another KC winner... Just lucky I guess... Franz was quite a guy --and a Soldier to be proud of - for any Country. Anyone liking a copy - shoot me a Private Message please-- and I'll email you one... top
