Default Looking for info on a HEER DKiG winner??

Hi.
Am looking to see if anyone has knowledge of a HEER Leutnant or Oberleutnant by the name of von Divingelo being a recipient of a German Cross in Gold or Silver during WW2.
Might hold the title of a Count in some past principality of old Germany, what with him having a 'von' in his name.
I suppose he could have also been an enlisted man that got promoted to officer after award. I doubt it, seeing as how he has the 'von' thing going but it never hurts to consider all possibilities, as small and slight as they may be.
Thanx,
Tim

Can't find anyone with that name in the Ordensträger as a holder of the DKiG or DKiS.

I checked for both DKiG and DKiS for all services and could not find the name. I have the books by Horst Scheibert so it could be incomplete.

Is this the tunic?

https://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/for....php?p=8509749

I can not see that name from the name tag......any chance of a better photo?

Also with white Waffenfarbe, Infanterie Regiment 63 became Schützen Regiment 63 on 11.10.1940, later Panzergrenadier Regiment 63 of 17 Panzer Division.

So that means he would have changed to green Waffenfarbe, around the same time?.....with that said we are looking for probably an older, junior officer, perhaps from the first world war and that would then not be a German Cross.

Yes, that’s the tunic.
I was curious if it was a DK award or not but in my gut, I knew that it wasn’t.
Older, junior officer?
Maybe a Spanish Cross but odds are exceedingly low.
I figure the loops for a foreign award.
