    Knight Cross recipient grouping for review

    Good day, Gentlemen! A few days ago We've found this grouping in a german pawn-shop.

    These are documents of Stug hauptmann Gottfired Tornau. I was searching for any mentions of him and found similar grouping here on WAF

    http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...ghlight=tornau

    I bet the most of papers I've found are fakes, but i really can't surely tell it about all of them.

    Anyway I believe they should be seen!!

    Regards
    Den

                      It’s hard to say from these images, but some look like copies of originals.

                          The signature on the EK-I is supposed to be Gustav Fehn but his signature looks nothing like that so that is another negative for the group. And I think I am right in saying that for that date XXXX.Panzerkorps didn't exist, it was XXXX.Armeekorps until July 1942 and Fehn didn't command it until September 1942. From 1940 to 1942 he commanded 5.Panzer-Division, and was a Generalmajor from August 1940 to August 1942, not reaching the rank of General d. Panzertruppen until November 1942.

                            Unfortunately I'm not well experienced in History of this Unit... however, here's shot of this doc, which was in discussed grouping posted by trave-militaria.
                            Different signature, but the same stamp..

                              And the signature on the EK-II citation is that of Mauritz von Wiktorin (or rather a copy of it) but he never commanded 14.Panzer-Division. At the date on the citation the commanding officer of 14.Panzer was Heinrich von Prittwitz und Gaffron.

                              The group is a just waste paper.
