Hi,

Could anyone provide details over the loss of Uffz. Ludwig Mang who was killed over Portsmouth, England on the 19th August 1942.

I am aware that was the date of the Dieppe raid.

Could anyone provide information concerning unit, aircraft and how the aircraft was brought down?

Many thanks

Rick

Bs Uffz Ludwig Mang of KFG106 shot in combat over Kanal on 19th Aug buried Chateaudun , looks like the Ju88 made it back. A Bm of KG2 Anton Mang was tken POW on 22/23-8-42.

In another entry for 19th Aug. it shows Ju88 of KFG106 140078 20% damaged in Emergency landing at Chateaudun following Feindbeschuss, it does not state this was Ludwig Mangs aircraft his may have been hit with only minor damage.
