Uffz. Karl Ludy: 1 7./NJG101 Fortress II Landau - Baden-Baden area (UR-AR): 4.000 m 22.44 626 Sqn Lancaster LM137. Note: same claim as Fw. Siegmann 22.40 hrs. According to OKL Bruchunterlagen (crash reports) for 12.9.1944, LM137 crashed at Stattmatten (Pl.Q. AR 7) following NF attack at 22.44 hrs. Also claimed by Flak of 1.-3./schw. Flak Abt. 543 (Eisb.) and 4./schw. Flak Abt. 429 (Eisb.) (‘Lancaster Stattmatten Pl.Q. AR 7 22.39 hrs’)

First name of Siegmann regrettably not known (yet).

Do you perhaps have a crew photo of this Lancaster crew?

Cheers, Theo
