Hi Andrew,

It is Guenther Halm instead of Gerhard. Guenther was at that time the youngest KC Holder. He received his KC personally from GFM Erwin Rommel...He and his wife Regina Halm are very nice and friendly people.



Here are the surnames:
Hinrich Ahrens
August Kaminski
Herbert Fries
Franz Weber
Ludwig Bauer
Kurt Bischof
Georg Bose (Georg is the only KC holder who is still active on the internet with his 86 years!!!!)
Siegfried Gerstner


Best
Martin

Yes, Paul Egger died in july 2007. I wrote him a letter shortly after his death not knowing about his recent passing. I have still a good contact with his partner who lived together with him.

Heres one nice pic I came along.

Boosfeld won the KC, GC, and Close Combat Clasp in Gold. Not an EL winner.

Yes, you are correct. I have him listed in the KC Winner index. If you look, the list is broken up into three sections: KC/OS, KC/O, and KC.
