Very importantly for such a late award, the group comes with the ORIGINAL Vorschlag four-page document which records the actions MEYER was being recommended for the DKIG for (amazing details) with ORIGINAL signature of Regt, Kdr.

The document was then sent to the commander of the I Fallschirmkorps, none other than Generalmajor Richard HEIDRICH (also RK + Swords winner) also signing (original signature) and unequivocally stating that he is “awarding” the DKIG to Meyer, not just recommending or endorsing. The grouping also comes with a commendation from XIV Panzerkorps commander General der Panzertruppen Fridolin von Senger und Etterlin (RK & Oakleaves) for his actions at Monte Castellaro with original signature.

3.  photos  -    U-BOAT KIA Document Grouping - U-405 - Historically Important!
Grouping to Matrosen Gef. Ernst ZURWONNE. He was KIA on Nov. 1, 1943 when serving on U-405. The fate of the U-405 is unique in submarine warfare! On the 23rd day of her eighth and final patrol, 1 November 1943, U-405 was engaged by the destroyer USS Borie at 49°00′N 31°14′W. The destroyer initially fired depth charges, after which U-405 came (and was probably forced) to the surface. Borie then rammed U-405. After the ramming, Borie was high-centered on top of U-405, and until they separated, exchanges of small arms fire took place. This was a unique battle: unlike other modern naval actions, it was decided by ramming and small arms fire at extremely close range. USS Borie succumbed the next day from damage suffered, with the loss of 27 officers and seamen. See link below for more details.
The grouping comes with his original WEHRPASS listing many U-Boat related entries included him being killed in action while serving on a U-Boat on Nov. 4, 1943.
