I've added the following passage to the first post, page 1.
edit , 27 Nov 2009 / Bernd R
The aspect of the legitimacy of a number of KCs (late war awards in very most cases) is not part of this photo database project. Once results and conclusions out of a more general and broad discussion (or future works on that issue) will affect the final edit and listing here perhaps. Meanwhile the listing will represent the status quo according to the newest major work on RKTs by author Veit Scherzer. So, all KC Holders where is no proof for a "de jure" award according to the regulations will be listed, too, but with a add-on "unofficial".
For a start and a background on this matter see here for example -> cancelled KC holders / state of the science / KC lists, make a forum search to find other discussions and single cases and draw your own conclusions.
I hope all can live with that. Without saying, everyone is free to choose an own text, that is to provide a short additional sketch to the photos mentioning a possibly doubtful status, or just not to do so.

/ Bernd

I've made a quick and rough tour through the big Fallschirmjäger threads, including the Fallschirmjäger listed within the RKT identification sticky. Result is an addendum / working tool on page 1 -> http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 4#p1394804 . This shows the preliminary result of evaluation and could help for a quick overview. Also, this way the field is prepared for those colleagues interested in that branch especially.

There is a pic available for almost every FJ recipient. The matter is the quality, that is the availability of other versions.

Not listed = photo listed on the index (open to be replaced)
Italics = pic Yes, better photo(s) are out there for sure
Marked red = pic Yes, for a few No ; situation unknown/unclear
