Ofw. Willi Kuhn Kg806/KG54- Ehrenpokal?

I am trying to acertain whether Flugzeugfuhrer Oberfeldwebel Willi Kuhns (Kg806/KG54) was awarded the Ehrenpokal.

He is not listed in the Ordenstrager however, I have been told that the Ordenstrager may not be complete.

Any help at all in deciphering whether Oberfeldwebel Willi Kuhns was or was not a recipient of the Ehenpokal will be very well received indeed.

Regards Richard.

Ofw. Willi Kühn Kg806/KG54 - Ehrenpokal?

A schoolboy error on my part which I have only just noticed is the name of the man in question was Willi (Wilhelm) Kühn. In my haste I was searching for a Kuhns.

On rechecking the Ordenstrager, there is listed:

Kühn Wilhelm Oberfeldwebel Beobachter 13.12.43 Ehrenpokal

However, the Willi Kühn I am seeking was a Flugzeugfuhrer, and not a Beobachter (The rank is however correct for the award date) although I have been told that the Ordenstrager is not without error.

Consequently, my question is can anyone shed any light as to whether this is one and the same man? Does anyone have any details of the unit in which the above entry in the Ordenstrager comes from?

Any pointers at all which will help identify if the entry is indeed the Will
Kühn I am seeking will be very gratefully received indeed.

Regards Richard.
