I found a holder of the oakleaves with the Blutorden:
Johannes Block (see pic).
He was “kommandiert zum II. Lehrgang an der Infanterie-Schule München“ (21.09. - 30.11.1923)
Though we try to find holders of the “Blutorden” and the Knights Cross there are famous other generals “only” with the Blutorden, for example:
Paul Reinhold Hermann (“only” German Cross in Gold and the großes Bundesverdienstkreuz), Generalmajor (Wehrmacht / Heer), and also promoted to the next range (two stars) as Generalmajor with the Bundeswehr, I show both pics.
General der Flieger Werner Kreipe (“only” German Cross in Gold), who was Chef des Generalstabs der Luftwaffe in autumn 1944. (Why he received the Blutorden ??!)
Generalmajor Walther Brehmer (Why he received the Blutorden ??!), who ordered the occupation of the SS- and SD-barracks in Paris on the late evening of 20.07.1944.
I also had to add the pic of an unknown officer with the Blutorden. Who is this man.
