Horst Petzschler autograph with a 5/28/44 date?

Hey guys,

I receently found a 30mm Mk108 shell that was signed by Horst Petzschler post war.

The odd thing is that he signed it as:

Horst Petzschler
JG3
5/28/44
Magdeburg


Though I know he was shot down once on this date...I cannot see any reason for him to mention this date. I know it was the last day he was with JG3, before getting re-assigned...so that is the only reason I can think of.

Does anyone know of any events where he maybe signed his autograph this way? Maybe some sort of JG3 reunion?
