His book, Rammjager, doesn't mention service with EJG2 at all, except to say that on 27 Mar 45, he, and Oberst Gollob were flying in an Si 204D to visit Heinz Bar's EJG2 in Lechfeld, when they were spotted by a pair of P-51s, and through Gollob's inspired flying managed to elude them. In the afternoon as he test flew an Me 262 some P-47s began straffing the airfiled, and he shot down 2 of them for his 102nd and 103rd victories. Then he says that by April 4th he had his 110th victory, but no further mention of EJG2.
