    KC Holder

    I decided to place that thread here instead of the historical research section since here are probably more award collecting people. I am researching the vitae of KC Holder Otto Wiesemann:

    He received the KC in a late episode of the war. Is there any possibility to find out more about him and his service in the archives? Are there any kind of files about his awards (KC proposals for example)? I am especially interested when he received his EKII, EKI and tank badge.

    Knights cross Winner Otto Wiesemann was Tank Commander Zugführer (platoon leader) 1. Panzerregiment 1 same unit than the famous Hans Strippel (who was platoon leader of 2.) In the Book the „ Regimentstagebuch 1. PzRgt 1“ for „his“ Unit from the beginning to the end 1945 in Hartburg (was made for the Veterans of this Unit) you find some Information about his unit.
    19.3.43 EK 1
    6.11.1939 EK 2
    Dez 1944 Knights cross (as Panther tank Commander)

    Otto Wiesemann claims upto 1944 more than 50 Tank Kills in the 1. Panzerregiment
