Hi,

Can anyone provide information on the loss of Gefreiter Eduard Stock who was killed in an air mission on the 30th May 1944?

Thanks

Hello Rick,


are we sure he was killed in a crash? I am not sure about the exact definition of 'Fliegertod', but I see he rests at Rotenburg/Wmme and I know the airfield nearby was raided that day by the USAAF:
(from the work by deZeng)


30 May 44: bombed by 147 B-24 Liberators – 2 x Bf 109Gs, 8 x Fw 190As and 1 x Fw 58 from Stab and I./JG 11 destroyed (4) or damaged (7) on the ground along with 27 KIA and 7 WIA from JG 11. In all, about 100 were killed in the attack. Damage to the airfield was - 577 - Luftwaffe Airfields 1935-45 significant because 200 prisoners (POWs?) had to be brought in to clear the rubble and make repairs.



Kind regards, Timon
