Re: Birth/Death details of non Ritterkreuz 50+ aces

Hi Guys

Thanks for getting back to me, and your questions.......questioning in my opinion helps us to get it right.

Wilhelm Kuken ?-4th April 1944 had 45 in the East.
Kurt Ratzlaff ?-? had 46 in the East until his capture.
Karl Brill 20th March 1920-19th January 1994 had 33(1West) until end of 1944, so possibly more, but unlikely as many as 50 as he was transfered away from the Eastern front!
Karlheinz Cordes 24th April 1920-survived had 43(2 viermots) until the end of 1944, so possibly, actually probably more!!
Josef Quarda(sorry, Id missing him) 19th February 1923 had 52 in the East until the end of 1944, and possibly/likely more in 1945 until his death on 5th March 1945.

With Helmut Holtz I only have him recorded as missing, please could you forward your details and source.

If you can expalin to me how to get my list of 2550 aces and a total of 7805 claimers onto 12oclockhigh I'd do it so everybody could scrutise and question it, it would also be a good help reference I'm sure.

Kind Regards


P.S Is there any interest in me doing a 40-49 non Ritterkreuz list do you think?
