Is there any reason why Schwerdfeger would wear his tank destruction badges on his left sleeve rather than on his right sleeve?

The following are merged to one entry : Rodenburg , Attenberger , Specht , Prien , von Kleist , Starosta , Bastian , Suhren , Käs , Hack , Ruhnke , Elflein , Tychsen , Kurt Meyer , and von Ballasko , Otto Barth , Baumbach , Paul Becker , Blaskowitz , Bleichrodt , Dumitrache.
I have added an autograph of Franz Hack.
I have deleted one pic of Friedrich-Wilhelm Ihrig posted by me, because a far better version is available already via the RKT id sticky (linked). I had overlooked that. The addition of Altstadt by chris44 has to be regarded as a replacement for the lower quality version initially posted by Anil.

We have to take a look on the index more and more to realize what's available already, both inside here and via the links to the RKT id sticky. Thanks.
