Thieme was recommended on 10th April 1945 with support of Generalfeldmarschall Model. Although all formal routes were taken, it was not formally awarded. However due to the so called Dönitz Erlaß, this could be considered a justified awarding. The awarding therefore was accepted by the Ordensgemeinschaft der Ritterkreuzträger and the Federal German Government. According recent research (Scherzer), the awarding however would have been not official.
