Re: Willi Elstermann

Correct. The first date I have him with II./ZG 26 as Gr.Kdr. is July 11th, 1944. Hptm. GŁnther Weyl was Gr.Kdr. II./ZG 26 until July 6th 1944, so Hptm. Elstermann replaced him. Could be that he was already there in the beginning of July, but the first confirmed date (from documents) is July 11th. When II./ZG 26 became II./JG 6 on August 4th 1944, Hptm. Elstermann became Gr. Kdr. II./JG 6.
