I trust you read his post. No such claim is made there so why not wait and see what he has to say?

Re: Strange case of Walter Dahl

Hi Stig and Johannes,

It's extremely hard to find much about either Tanzer or Woidich at all, but I hope what I have turned up helps provide a few pieces of the mosaic

Nick,

I no longer hang out on FB but I always enjoy your updated vic tally postings for the fighter pilots--you or somebody really needs to start up a website like The Old Petr Kacha site.

Oh hi there, Nick!

Yes, long time no hear. Hope you've been well.
If somebody was prepared to webmaster such a site, I would happily contribute. As you'd know, I gave some assistance to Petr Kacha back in the day but all these years later I am the first to own up that the website is quite far out of date.

Re: Strange case of Walter Dahl

Does that help to clarify the Tanzer-143-kills-enigma ?

Remind us what you have really contributed to the subject in the course of over a thousand posts....?

And maybe, just maybe, wanting to be "officially" told exactly which number to "meticulously" and "painstakingly" write next to his name is not all some members wish to know about him.

I posted at the invite of two other members, after asking one of them in advance if they would be interested if I did so. Afterward, two members thanked me for what I contributed.

Hint for you, Knusel. Don't try getting too clever with people unless having threads closed down is genuinely a hobby of yours....

Perhaps not

But it certainly helps us to understand why Johannes has not been able to locate more than 35 claims made by him.

What would be much more interesting to know is who first came up with his 143 claims nonsense? When Tanzer died in 1960 few, if any, WW 2 historians had begun to approach the survivors and as far as I know Tanzer never wrote a 1950's style book of self promotion, meaning it feels a bit unlikely to have been himself. But who knows?

Cheers
Stig
