Re: Ofgr. Horst Rippert

Horst Rippert scored his claims 20 through to 29 ( or 28 ? ) while serving with 13./JG 27 and after the disbandment of IV./JG 27 in early 1945 with 7./JG 27 within II. Gruppe. There are some discrepancies as to the confirmation of some claims owing to the fact that they were claimed rather late and few documents have survived that would allow to verify all of his late claims.

Have a look at the claims lists in the two volumes dealing with II. and with III and IV. Gruppen of JG 27, where you can see the details as far as we were able to establish them.

Hope this helps.
