Ludwig Scharf JG5 Pow Russia 15/9/42
 
Hi guys

What do we know about this 18-victory ace? I believe he had 12 victories in 1941 and a further six in 1942 before he was PoW on 15 September.

Cheers
Stay safe
Brian

Thanks for that, Ghost

However, that's just about all the information that I had previously gathered.

Are there any photos of him?

Many thanks
Stay safe
