Rick, I see he is shown as a Glider Pilot so his death may not be aircraft linked he could have been lost in ground fighting after landing. Not certain if his loss would be the the airborne/para listings,

Hi Rickback444

You inquired about a Ludwig Hofmann a couple years ago. He was the pilot on my Uncle's JU-88 that went down 22 June 1943.

Would you mind reaching out to me please if you could. I would just like to see if you have any information or maybe photos with my uncle in them. And see if you have a photo of Hofmann. I have a photo of their original burial in 1943.

My uncle was Friedrich Arbe

Thank you

Daryl Goss

Would it be possible to obtain a copy of the photo you do have of Hofmann, etc you do have ?


I know my grandmother, the air gunner's sister (Friedrich Arbe was the air gunner) would love to see a photo of Hofmann. She is still alive and well at 95 yrs old here in Pennsylvania.

I have a photo of their original burial if you are interested. And know where they are all buried today.
