Re: Claims and losses JG51

Hi

I have some Brendel/Josten claims:-

Brendel=

4th March 1945 Il-2 his 174th
4th March 1945 Il-2 his 175th
8th March 1945 Pe-2 at 1432 hrs his 176th
9th March 1945 unknown type at 12?? hrs his 177th
9th March 1945 unknown type at 12?? hrs his 178th

Josten=

10th March 1945 Boston at 1212 hrs his 154th
10th March 1945 Boston at 1215 hrs his 155th
10th March 1945 LaGG-3 at 1243 hrs his 156th

As Horst Petzschler's memory of claims have proved to be unreliable during the period covered by the Micro Films, I guess we should believe that they are unreliable for the period not covered by the Micro Films i.e 1945, guess only the discovery of his log-book will answer his 1945 claims!

Regards

Johannes

P.S Seems that Brendel just has the edge over Kittel with regards as to who is the top Il-2 ace!
