  13. Sorry, I don't know if you meant Krause or Krauss. The last ribbon of Günther Krause is unknown to me. Thanks for the rest.
  14. During the Spanish Civil War he had two posts: Advisor in Naval Command, from 01 Nov 1936 in OKM (26 Sep 1935-03 Apr 1938) and Navigation-Officer on the Armoured-Ship ‘Deutschland’ (04 Apr 1938-10 Jan 1940). "Deutschland" was active in the Spanish Civil War but on the wiki it says: "Deutschland spent the majority of 1938 and 1939 conducting training maneuvers with the rest of the fleet and making goodwill visits to various foreign ports." And that is the time Krauss was on the ship. Your thoughts?
  15. And it seems you missed Krause' awards.
