This base is no good instrument for matching losses to LW records, since it contains mostly irretrievable losses of crews. The info given is not enabling to draw any conclusions.

I remember when I asked a Brazilian born to translate some letters and Combat missions from former Luftwaffe pilots I had communicate with...the same problem: it was OLD German...and most of people did not understand!
I am very glad and thankful towards you...A lot of new information and a new world of perspectives in cross-checking LW claims and losses over the Eastern Front.
May you have a nice week Evgeny...and if you ever come to Brazil, please let me know...lot of waterfalls nearby, really lovelly.
