I'm admittedly ignorant of the career of Viktor Moelders. How many victories was he credited with and what front(s) did he fly in? Was he shot down and made a POW during the war?

Thanks,
Kenneth

He served with 1./ZG1, and got 7 victories to june 1940. Then, briefly with NJG1, and then was transferred to his brother's Geschwader, JG51, as StaKa of fighter-bomber Staffel, 2./JG51. With this unit he got 2 more victories untill october 1940, when he was shot down and prisoned in England.

Re: Viktor Moelders passed away.
 
Please note he passed away in July 2010 so this occurred nearly 18 months ago & he did not have the Knights Cross
