Default Interesting Fact....

Hello Guy's Just an interesting fact about Generalmajor Karl Herzog.....I made two visits to his home (Munich). He showed me his RK and it was a S&L first pattern core with a finished ring eye...a real beauty ! Then he showed me his other RK and it was a S&L first pattern core with un-finished ring eye...also a beauty. I asked him why he had two of them, and he said because he never recieved his RK at the time of award in April 45. He joined the Bundeswehr in 1957 (after 10 years in a Soviet Gulag - 1945 - 1955) and he retired in 1966. I will be posting a studio photo of him in uniform wearing his Rk soon. Tom
