Details: Non-formal awarding.
The recommendation to the Eichenlaub reached the OKH/PA/P 5 on April 15th, 1945 and was supported by SS-Obergruppenführer and General der Waffen-SS Bittrich as Kommandierender General II. SS-Panzerkorps and by the Oberbefehlshaber Heeresgruppe Süd Generaloberst Rendulic. It is most likely that the awarding was not processed anymore.
When the count of the awarding of the Eichenlaub was continued this would probably have been the 879th Award.
