The caption says Wolfgang Zietz, the RK looks genuine, but I can find no reference to a RKT of that name. Anyone know him? (source: Scherzer)
Officer named Wolfgang Zietz , the photo is known since the war's end , it is on the Scherzer photo DVD as well -> it is common knowledge, that this man is not a Knight's Cross Holder (there is no proof for that until today at least) / AHF id

Can anyone please tell me what he has written.

Thankyou

The writing says: As a souvenir of Emden, dedicated to family Hermann Djuren I got to like as a present before your emigration to America. Emden, April 10 1949, Martin Feldkamp

Hi Ulrich!
Are you sure it's Feldkamp? There's no Martin Feldkamp as a RKT recipient, at least at http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de

To me the letter looks more like an F (see http://www.suetterlinschrift.de); and Feldkamp is much more common (see for instance http://www.telefonbuch.de). However, in Emden it's just 9:6, so I admit I might well be mistaken. Perhaps he used both spellings.

I can read Martin Veldkamp. Have a look at the word "Familie" there you can see the different between V and F.

Could the Bundesmarine RK winner that I posted in the previous page be Wilhelm Meentzen?
