Re: Information Sought on Loss of Gefr. Hans Novak - 22.02.1943 in Africa

I believe the card translates as ''?G Pilot - holder of the EKII who on 22-2-1943 one day after his 19th.birthday in far off Africa his life gave for his beloved homeland''. Could any body confirm this and what the ?G is, like Khorat I could not find him in the QM's list. I looked in the Jan to April period. Could he have died on the 22nd. Feb following a much earlier wounding, or been washed ashore and buried on 22-2-1943 following an earlier shot down in 1942.
