Oberleutnant Richard Anders (January 3, 1915 - September 9, 1993) had participated in the invasion of Poland in 1939 with the Aufklärungsgruppe 21 when his reconnaissance plane was shot down by an enemy hunter plane which left him and Hauptmann wounded. Anders then changed units to Ergänzungs-Aufklärungsgruppe (6 August 1942) and Aufklärungsgruppe 12 (1 September 1942). He was awarded the Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes on 27 July 1944 as Oberleutnant and Flugzeugführer at 11. Staffel (H) / Nahaufklärungsgruppe 12 / Fliegerführer Kroatien / Luftwaffenkommando Südost after completing many reconnaissance missions and directing artillery fire. At the end of the war Anders joined Staff 8. Flak-Division. In total he has completed 370 feindflug (combat missions), most of which take place on the Eastern Front. Other medals and awards he received: Flugzeugführerabzeichen; Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz (November 26, 1939) and in Silber (January 21, 1944); Dienstauszeichnung der Wehrmacht IV. Klasse (1939); Eisernes Kreuz II. Class (December 13, 1939) and I.

He also got one foreign medal namely the Ehrenzeichen der Slowakisches Schnellen Division XLII (Slovakien Honor award for service against the Soviet Union) which he got on 23 May 1942. What was unusual about Richard Anders's Oberleutnant photo was the absence of the Luftwaffe eagle logo on his hat! Post-war photos taken?
