    I can post some pics of the rest (DKiG & PB) on saturday if you like.
    I 100% agree with you, I have a K&Q myself also worn but not as much as yours

    Please post some pictures of the DKiG & PB

    So that could mean he was awarded this at the end of 42. Are there pictures of him wearing this one or was this one he acquired to wear and he kept his award cross at home? No question it's a great RK, just interesting to find out more about it.

    This is an early made cross without the die flaws in the rim.
    The die flaws comes in later made crosses.

    I thought the K&Q Knight`s Crosses were late war awards.

    Yes, he was shot by an allied pilot when he was hanging at his parachute
