Apollo, while I can't help you with the man I can help you with all those question marks after "III./PR15". All of the Panzer Divisions of Army Group South were given a third battalion for "Blue" in 1942, in the case of PR 15 this was originally II./PR35 from 4 PD. PR15 still had its third battalion at Kursk.

Oblt. Klaus Piontek received the DKiG on 9.10.42.
