I think Kaiser was listed as MIA & presumed dead in the "Last" days of the war (April 45).

Anybody knows the name of this RKT? The photo dates from the mid '50. Is very interesting to see he has the Knight's Cross display in reverse...

Regards,
Sepp.

Another long-term project has come to an end: Karl Donit'z funeral (6 January 1981).

As the last German officer with the rank of Grand Admiral, he was honoured by many former servicemen and foreign naval officers who came to pay their respects at his funeral on 6 January 1981. However, he had received only the pension pay of a captain because the West German government ruled all of his advances in rank after that had been because of Hitler. He was buried in Waldfriedhof Cemetery in Aumühle without military honours, and soldiers were not allowed to wear uniforms to the funeral. However a number of German naval officers disobeyed this order and were joined by members of the Royal Navy, such as the senior chaplain the Rev. Dr John Cameron, in full dress uniform. Also in attendance were over one hundred holders of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross.

Many known faces can be seen on the pictures, including Hans-Ulrich Rudel (being ask for autographs by the crowd) and a Swords winner, who's face I can't recognize.

Hope you like this, guys!

Regards,
Sepp.

Thanks you Sepp ! Never seen these before ! The swords winner is Horst Niemack and I also see Will Fey (W-SS). H. Niemack was the President of the OdR at that time, and Will Fey was also on the OdR staff. Tom

Thanks you all for the words of encouragement and support!

For that, I leave you a second set of photos I wasn't planning to add here, but since the project did well, then no problem

Regards,
Sepp.

Bottom left photo....Will Fey again & behind him, Walter Harzer. The swords in the photo are H. Niemack's original wartime ones. Afew years later I heard his home was broken into and all his swords were stolen. I met him several times and he was a true gentleman. Tom

I note the tribute from the Hess family. He was still alive then. Amazing shots.

The Donitz funeral photos are FANTASTIC!!! As someone who has a keen interest in Kriegsmarine officers, I want to say thank you for posting these!

Do you happen to have an enlarged photo of the funeral pillow?

Best regards
Pierce

I'll see what I can do, but I do not hold much hope. Let me give it a try
