Re: Oblt. Wolfgang Ernst

This is a question for Doug Stankey. Above you seem to indicate that Ernst was appointed Staffelkapitän of 7./JG 52 on 1 Aug. 1944. From where does that info come? I have not seen that before and there is some question (sources conflict) whether 7./JG 52 even existed at that time. The original 7./JG 52 had been transferred to IV./JG 3 at the end of May 44. The earliest date I have seen for the reformation of 7./JG 52 was 15 August, while other souces put it in October or even later.

Regards,
Tom
