Re: May 12, 1944 and JG Pilot loss!!!

Hi, Christian

As you state his age, I guess You are working out of a prayer card as a source?

As this pilot held the low rank of Gefreiter, the best tip I could give you (as you do not know his unit as of yet) is to contact the Deutsche Dienststelle(WASt) in Berlin, and ask them to dig out his personnel loss record.

It would probably have information on the aircraft he flew, etc

It would be wise to wait a while though and see if there are others on this board which have already recorded this loss, read about it in a book or otherwise have the information You want.

There are 100+ aircraft losses for the fighter units of the Luftwaffe on this date. Not that many personnel losses, but a fair number of them also...
