Hello Ingo,

Do u know anything more of him??
I've searched the internet but the only Hermann Eckhart I can find is a u-boat commander:

Hermann Eckhardt
Born on 15 Jun, 1916 in Aachen.
Crew 36. Kapitänleutnant (1 Mar, 1943)
Died on 11 Mar, 1943, North Atlantic.
Commands:
U-28, U-432
(uboat.net)

And I don't think that's one and the same...

here two three more KC holders - to the other above - from Guido Knopp "Hitlers Kinder"(Hitler's children) requesting you to ID:

The first both are from "Grossdeutschland"!

Hi
The first picture showing RKT from the GD division would show in my opinion Hans Sachs (in Feldgrau) then Heinz Maaz (in black wrapper).

Hi
I think Denis could be right regarding Heinz Maaz. Here's a photo to compare from a well known site:
