Hi all,

On 27. January 1944 a 1./Fl.Verb.G2 lost He 111 H-6 W.Nr. 7334 near Bad Reinerz.
Can anyone post names of the crew and their fate?
Thanks you for any info.

I have a 30% loss for WNr. 4334 in the fall of 1941. I think Matti's quote of WNr. 4334 for my 'other' WNr. 7334 from 1942 resolves the conflict nicely. Thanks Matti.

He 111H-6, 4334, n.n., , I., 3., KG 4, , , DF+ON, , 27-Oct-41, Notlandung due to engine damage., , Lfl.1/Eins.Osten, Gen.Qu.6.Abt. (mfm #4)-Vol.6, , bei Dno, 30%, F, , ,

Sorry for bringing this old thread back up, but can someone confirm the information given by Jim on Ofw. Fritz Fern. Was he indeed part of 2./KG53 when he was KIA?

According to Heinz Kiehl's loss list he was part of 5./KG53. I would also place an he111 with code A1+CN with 5th Staffel.

I know that during the campaign in the West he was part of 3./KG53.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,


ps. Uffz. Fritz Grzelaschowski was at least till July 1942 5th Staffel. (source: his eastfront medal doc.)

I have a note from NVM, that Fern etc and A1+CN were from 5./KG 53.
