Oaks-Holder LW Pilots with Romanian award

Post by Münster » 07 Apr 2007 17:39

Hi Guys

Iam looking for a list of LW Pilots with Oak Leaves whom had the Romanian Medal for Aeronautical Merit with 2 clasps to the award. Also they must hold the DKIG. Any help is appreciated.

Cheers
Dion

Dieter, Also in your opinion, is that a long range or short range fighter clasp in the foto?

I can give you several names, but you have to search for yourself if they received RK and Oak Leaves. From memory, there was a Royal Decree for many of III./JG 52's pilots in 1941, among which you will find many RK holders.
