As i have mentioned in a previous thread, I have a listing of all recipients of the Iron Cross, 1st and 2nd Class. This list includes the recipietns last namem, full given names (often three or four), rank and unit as when awarded the Iron Cross.

I will be glad to look up names for those interested. Please understand that I can not give you more information than contained in the list except for some officers who are listed in other resources in my library. It's a hit or miss propostion.

Feel free to ask.

Hi Andy,

Can you please check for Friedrich Carl Leder or any other Leder's? He should be listed as Prussian and fought in the three battles: 1864, 1866 & 1870-71...

Please let me know if you need any more information.

Grüße

Jeff

p.s. I would also be interested to know if there are many Haschick's or Lehmann's listed.

Kylie,

The list I have dates to the Franco Prussian War of 1870/71. Your request (Mehrtens) deals with WWII. Unfortunately, I can not assist with awards for the War.

No one named Fruhwald received the Iron Cross for 1870/71.

What a nice thing for you to do for people. Appreciate it very much.

This is a long shot but could you see if there are people with the last name of ANDERT or ALTSCHULER?

Not sure of first names just yet

Thank you - Linda
