I have a copy of the published Ordenstrager, which is a vital tool in researching Luftwaffe document groupings as part of my ongoing projects.

I was recently reliably informed that the Ordenstrager is in fact incomplete when it comes to the award of the Ehrenpokal.

To that end, I am appealing to any members here who might have access to the complete list of awardees of the Ehrenpokal, in particular in relation to an Oberfeldwebel Willi Kuhn, a Flugzeugfuhrer who flew with III./KG54, who is not listed on the Ordenstrager.

Any help whatsoever, really will be very well received indeed.

Regards Richard.

A schoolboy error on my part which I have only just noticed is the name of the man in question was Willi (Wilhelm) Kühn. In my haste I was searching for a Kuhn(s).

On rechecking the Ordenstrager, there is listed:

Kühn Wilhelm Oberfeldwebel Beobachter 13.12.43 Ehrenpokal

However, the Willi Kühn I am seeking was a Flugzeugfuhrer, and not a Beobachter (The rank is however correct for the award date) although I have been told that the Ordenstrager is not without error on the award of the Ehrenpokal and that there are more complete lists in circulation.

Consequently, my question is can anyone shed any light as to whether this is one and the same man? Does anyone have any details of the unit in which the above entry in the Ordenstrager comes from?

Any pointers at all which will help identify if the entry is indeed the Will Kühn I am seeking will be very gratefully received indeed.

Regards Richard.
