I was sure we'd discussed that a while back but can't find the thread (you kpow the feeling ) I thought it was on this one but apparently not. There was some denazification of the old awards in (I think) 1953 & you see quite a few Ritterkreuz's etc. with no Swastika dating from this time on the militaria market. - Not sure it would have been the best 'form' to wear them (depending on company and possible offence I suppose), but I feel sure we had some pictures somewhere of RKT's in NATO uniforms & wearing the decoration??
