Hptm. H. - Pz.Gren.Rgt.66 German Cross in Gold grouping


Description

Nice medal grouping to Hauptmann Heinz Joachim H. serving a as company commander with Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment 66 which was part of the 13. Panzer-Division.

An untouched grouping that comes directly from his son!

What makes this grouping really special is that this grouping came together with the German Cross in gold grouping of Hauptmann L.! Hauptmann H. and Hauptmann L. were both decorated with the German Cross. Hauptmann H.’s son and Hauptmann L.’s daughter got married which is the reason both groupings came from the same family!

Please see Hauptmann L.'s grouping listed in this catalogue!
