Nibelung wrote:I guess Franz Schmitz is not a bad example of a Knights Cross recepient, being the only soldier from a medic unit to recieve one. On 7h July 1943 he recovered 98 wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Franz Kurowski (keep in mind) in his book claims that in total mora that 2000 German soldiers were saved during the course of the war...

Now isn't that hero material?

Hello Nibelung!

There's an older thread dealing with medical personel that received the RK. It lists the names and also with several photographs. Combat medics are very heroic indeed...

I can add photos of several RK holders from my own collection to the RK data base but get this message when I click on a person's name.
