RARE Close Combat Clasp award doc., signed KC Holder MENDE, later vice-Chancellor Republic of Germany !!
Rare Signature. Major Erich MENDE, born 1916, was awarded the KC on 24.2.45 while commanding the G.R.216. the later FDP politician climbed all stages until vice-chancellor of the federal republic of Germany. I would recommend the reading of its excellent book "Das verdammte Gewissen" containing his military service during WW2.
