DK in gold

the DK were a stepping stone between the EK1 and the RK. They were awarded for bravery. They got them for doing something brave that was greater then the EK1 but did not meet the requirements for the RK

Crew members of the U 565 (Type VII C) viewing with interest the decoration of their comrade, the DKiG. Interesting is also the type of uniform they wear, since this submarine operated in the Mediterranean...............
