For these two shot downs he received both of the iron crosses. Decker was moved with his unit to the Eastern front where he was able to shoot down an impressive numbers of airplanes. With the grouping there is some extra documentation. Decker was KIA in the Stalingrad area 27.8.42.

The grouping contains out of the following documents:

Pilot badge
Iron cross 2nd class
Iron cross 1st class
Wound badge in black
Fighter clasp in gold 
4 very unusual "Abschuss" confirmed shot down documents of Russian airplanes
The Luftwaffe honour list ("Ehrenliste"), inlcluding his name

From the complete Decker group there are two documents missing, the German cross in gold and the honour goblet. These two documents were split off the grouping but should be an a private collection. 

Very interesting and almost historical important group of a smaller ace of the Jagdgeschwader 52!
