- Single award document for the Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern to Hauptmann Alwin Ostendorf, September 1944.
- Ostendorf served with, and probably commanded, the Arbeits-Bataillon (L) 8 at that time. This forced labour unit deployed Italian POW's in the Hamburg area.
- The citation has a nice, uncommon layout by the Wehrkreis X (Hamburg). It was signed by an Oberst Ecke (?) as commander.
