From Knights Cross Winners of the U-BOat Service by Franz Kurowski.
Identified as Heinrich Petersen from U-99 and i know it's not him as he was much older.

Thanx

Oberbootsmannmaat Mühlbauer was the only Maat (leading seaman), serving in the U-boats, that received the Knights Cross. He served since April 1939 in the Navy and switched in autumn 1939 to the U-boats. He was on board of U-123 from the commission and took part in very successful patrols under Moehle and Hardegen with a total sinkings of more than 200,000 tons.
Also outstanding were his 822 748 days at sea, nearly two years and a 4 months on patrol! In two cases he, with his sure eyes, saved the boat from being sunk by the enemy.
U-123 - 8 patrols, 352 days 05.40 - 1942
U-170 - 4 patrols, 396 days 01.43 - 05.45

Best regards
George
