Wurmheller

Hi Steve

Wurmheller was serving with 1./JG 2 on 19 August 1942. The information about him in action over Dieppe is from http://members.aol.com/falkeeins/Stu...en/dieppe.html It does seem that he had already suffered the broken foot previously as you mention. However, it appears that he had to make a forced landing on his first sortie, claimed two Spitfire fighters and a Blenheim bomber on his second sortie, claimed three Spitfire fighters but was shot down and baled out on his third sortie and claimed a further Spitfire fighter on his fourth sortie. Thus, he was made an emergency landing and was shot down that day.

Horrido!

Leo
