Hello,

Here is now a little usual document because German did not grant so easily diplomas EK2 to foreigners. This diploma was put back to a Rumanian incorporated into 1. Rumanian mountain Division, unit fighting beside the German troops for the conquest of Crimea. This diploma was signed by General der Infanterie Franz Mattenklott, commander of 42. Armee-Korps and also Befehshaber Krim. To note the place of allocation, a peculiarity which I always appreciate, Auf der Krim, in Crimea.

Cordial greetings.

A very early EK II citation for a U-Boat sailor on U-18. It's possible that it was awarded for when U-18 acted as a decoy for U-47's attack on Scapa Flow.
