    I have seen some lists of Knights Cross holders and notice that some names are not on all of the lists. Are foreign volunteers listed as well?

    Dear PzJgr: of around 500 Knights Cross Recipients addresses I have, there are several men on my list that are from other countries. Also if you are talking about names on other lists such as maybe a Waffen SS list, I know that on Michael Millers site, he will have all the men listed that recieved the KC who served in the Waffen SS.

    For instance just off the top of my head and on my list for forign volunteers who gat the KC, I have Remy Schrijnen (he is Belgian, but considers himself German) and Henri Fenet who is French.

    Hope this helps you..
