Looks a little bit like Feldwebel Hans Richter, 1./NAGr. 1. Was shoot down at 24.12.44 and became PoW. I have different photos from him with this nice white pulover!!!! (Looks like the same!)

Re: Identification of German Cross in Gold Winner

Unit was the 2.NAGr.13, flew i. sommer 44 with 4.F123, at that time he "commited" 2 belly-landings, curiously the planes are known for these two , but not for his last flight on 24. dec.44 . flew 130 "Feindflüge" was probably Feldwebel, not Fj-Fw, did he flew for JGr.200 ,,??

???
