Had a phone from Jürgen Huß, who is an author of books in our hobby (NEW: Die Ritterkreuzträger aus dem Mannschaftsstand). He says, that we talk about Oberleutnant Adolf Fischbach.

carius wrote: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
Thanx for replies Dieter and Doc. I just looked at Mühlbauer in the book and it had Petersen's picture. Nice proof reading!!

Definitely not Helbig.
My version is based on two points:
1) Walter Bradel participated in operation "Weserübung" as part of KG 3 and he could be awarded a Narvik shield, but we don't have information about this (omission in award documents or incomplete information? )
2) His facial features and some of awards matched (in my view)
This picture confirms you version. Many thanks!
Best wishes. Denis
