All 19 Pz:

One pic shows Gustav Schmidt ( I think ) awarding RK to ObstLt Gustav Adolf Bruns on 15.10.42. -- So not the same RKT in second pic. What does the second pic show? Hans Källner awarding RK to a Mj. Was it Mj Alfred Nähring or Mj Walter Mecke?

das-ritterkreuz.de has a pic of Nähring

Any ideas on this SS KC (or is it Oak Leaves ??) holder.

The picture is captioned as General Eberbach with SS.Pz.Div. Hitlerjugend at Caen in 1944.

Is this the same person?
I have him as Freyer in both cases but they seem different to me. I may be wrong though.
Siegfried Freyer / AHF id

Ebay said " Obst Alfons Eckert" -- and I remember some forum member posted this a while ago.

It looks like it could be ObstLt Alfons Eckhardt, who won his RK as Mj, kmdr III/InfRgt 11 (mot), 14 Div.

Eckhardt2.jpg was from Biblio Verlag.
