Jetting was awarded the Knights Cross for his actions at the Battle of Monte Corono (near Monte Cassino) in Italy 1944. 

The 3.Panzergrenadier-Division was formed in June of 1943 from the 386.Infanterie-Division (mot) and the 3.Infanterie-Division (mot) that was lost in the Stalingrad Pocket. After formation, the 3.Panzergrenadier was sent to Italy in July, 1943 where it took part in the Battles for Salerno, Cassino, the Bernhard Line, the Anzio beachhead, and then in the general retreat to Rome in May and June, 1944. The 3.Panzergrenadier-Division was transfered to Florence in late June, 1944, and then was sent to the Western Front near Paris in August, 1944 where it was engaged by the Allies before taking part in the general withdrawl across France, operations in and near Nancy, and then in the Battles for Metz. It saw action in Aachen in November, 1944 and was then rested behind the lines shortly before the Ardennes counter-offensive in December, 1944, and the operations for Eifel in January, 1945. The Division was in action defending near Cologne when it was trapped by the Allies in the Ruhr Pocket where it surrendered in April, 1945.

A VERY interesting thread that should be kept in archive by the buyer is to be found on the WAF forum.
