Re: Gerhard Thyben

Hallo Guys

By coincidence yesterday I was investigating this. Basically Tony Woods is quoting exactly what is on the Mikrofilms, however in July 1944 JG 54 starts have the Staffel numbers generalised to Gruppe number, and starts losing the anerk number. Thyben last claims were with 7./JG 54. Trouble is that all four Staffels and the Stab of each Gruppe all appear indistinguishable as just the Gruppe number i.e St.II./JG 54, 5./JG 54, 6./JG 54, 7./JG 54 and 8./JG 54 all appear as II./JG 54.

Kind Regards

Johannes
