Re: Oblt/Hptm Wilhlem Knapp

You're right, 3.(F)/123 is a typo, 121 is right. Known details of his death is the date 10-6-44 and the place of his grave, Kronberg/Taunus near Frankfurt/Main. A couple of years ago someone told me that he was killed in his Ju188 during a night flight, crashed near Obernau/Giesen or Giessen. Very inaccurate specification, because several Obernau-vilages exists, but not near Giesen or Giessen. About 4 weeks before he took command of (F)123, replacing another RK holder, Hans Wolff.
