Re: DIERKES, Alois - information Jägerblatt

Hi Wouter,

Uffz Alois Dierkes was not a pilot, he was Bordfunker in the V.(Z)/LG1, the Zerstörer Gruppe of LG1. He flew in Poland and France, where he was wounded on 12 May 1940. Upon recovery, he returned to his unit, which became I./NJG3 in Oct 1940. Later in the war Direkes served as an instructor, training Hungarian night fighter crews.

Dierkes' experiences in the 1st year of war are described in the book 'Zerstörer Gruppe: A History of V.(Z)/LG1 ~ I./NJG3' by the late Ludwig von Eimannsberger.
