Awards and decorations[edit]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Ernst Biehler's nomination by the troop, without the mandatory explanatory statement, was received by the Heerespersonalamt (HPA—Army Staff Office) on 20 April 1945 as a teleprinter messenger. On 21 April 1945 the nomination arrived at the time relocating 1. Squadron of the HPA. The teleprinter message indicated that the explanatory statement would follow later. This statement was either never sent, may have gotten stuck or lost, at least it does not exist anymore. Biehler was also not listed in the Knight's Cross nomination book nor was a file card created. A presentation cannot be verified in the German Federal Archives. According to the Association of Knight's Cross Recipients (AKCR) the award was presented in accordance with the Dönitz-decree. This is illegal according to the Deutsche Dienststelle (WASt) and lacks legal justification. The presentation date was assigned by Walther-Peer Fellgiebel. Biehler was a member of the AKCR.[4]
