Leutnant Horst Baldauf (May 24, 1920 - June 10, 1944) was one of the best reconnaissance pilots owned by Aufklärungsgruppe 22. The aircraft that he usually piloted were Dornier Do 17 P & F and Heinkel He 111H. He was lost on duty in Vinnitsa, Ukraine, on June 10, 1944. Until this moment his fate was not known with certainty, but most likely his plane had been shot down by Soviet aircraft. For his dedication Baldauf was awarded the Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes posthumously on August 8, 1944 as Leutnant and Beobachter in 2. (Fern) Staffel / Aufklärungsgruppe 22 / Luftwaffen-Kommando Don. At that time the unit (Aufklärungsgruppe 22) was dissolved! Other medals and awards he received: Fliegerführerabzeichen, Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse; Eisernes Kreuz I.Klasse; Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten 1941/42 (1942); Luftwaffe Ehrenpokale für Besondere Leistungen im Luftkrieg (September 21, 1942); Frontflugspange für Aufklärer in Gold mit Anhänger; and Deutsches Kreuz in Gold (June 24, 1943)

Fahnenjunker-Oberfeldwebel Josef Baldes (September 6, 1915 - July 30, 1985), who was born and died in Differten / Kreis Saarlouis (Germany), was a aufklärerflieger pilot of Aufklärungsgruppe 124 recommended by his unit to get the Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes in early April 1945 The proposal was processed by Oberkommando der Luftwaffe / Auszeichnung und Discipline (OKL / AuD) on April 16, 1945. Approved, the recommendation was then forwarded as Luftwaffenpersonalamt-Verleihungsvorschlag (LPA-VV) Nr. 1577 to Reichsmarschall's aide Hermann Göring for approval. Unfortunately, the recommendation was never resolved and the war ended on May 8, 1945. Therefore, the award ceremony could not be verified even though Walther-Peer Feldgiebel officially stated in his book that Baldes was awarded the Ritterkreuz on May 9, 1945 as Fahnenjunker-Oberfeldwebel and Flugzeugführer at 1. (Fern) Staffel / Aufklärungsgruppe 124 / Kommandierender General der Deutschen Luftwaffe in Norwegen. Other medals and awards he received: Eisernes Kreuz II.Klasse; Eisernes Kreuz I.Klasse; Luftwaffe Ehrenpokale für Besondere Leistungen im Luftkrieg (April 12, 1943); and Deutsches Kreuz in Gold (August 16, 1943). During his war career the Baldes completed 281 combat missions, and he was listed as the last aufklärerflieger to be awarded the Ritterkreuz!
