Lt Rolf Müller - Ju87 pilot

Hi all,

This pilot was wounded in 1941 and I am trying to find out what happened to him subsequentially. The chance of him survivng WWII are slim though a final listing would be of interest.

WNr. 5878 was a Ju 87R-2 of the IV.(St)/LG 1 (part of Luftflotte 5). On 30.June 1941 the pilot, Ltn. Rolf Müller was WIA due to Flak, his Bordfunker Uffz. K. Köhlert was KIA at Litsa. The aircraft was a 100% loss.

Anyone got anything more on Lt Rolf Müller?

HNY to everyone.

regards

Mark

Re: Lt Rolf Müller - Ju87 pilot

Information I had.

MÜLLER, Rolf. (DOB: 19.03.20). 04.41 in IV./LG 1. 30.06.41 Lt., IV.(St)/LG 1 WIA - Ju 87R-2 hit by AA from minesweepers Uritskij and Kujbishev. 1941-43 in Erg.Stukagruppe Würzburg, 3./St.G. 5 and 2./St.G. 5. 01.05.43 Oblt. in Nachtfluggruppe Prowehren, trf to St.G. 101. 20.09.44 Oblt. and Staka 2./SG 104.

Had a look on the Volksbund site and came up with this.

Rolf Paul Müller

Rolf Paul Müller konnte im Rahmen unserer Umbettungsarbeiten nicht geborgen werden. Die vorgesehene Überführung zum Sammelfriedhof in Cheb war somit leider nicht möglich. Sein Name ist auf dem o.g. Friedhof an besonderer Stelle verzeichnet.
Nähere Informationen zu diesem Friedhof erhalten Sie hier.
Name und die persönlichen Daten des Obengenannten sind auch im Gedenkbuch der Kriegsgräberstätte verzeichnet. Sie können gern einen Auszug bei uns bestellen.
Bitte beachten Sie, dass auf einigen Friedhöfen nicht die aktuelle Version ausliegt, somit kann der Name Ihres Angehörigen darin evtl. noch nicht verzeichnet sein.
Nachname: Müller
Vorname: Rolf Paul
Dienstgrad: Oberfeldwebel
Geburtsdatum: 19.03.1920
Geburtsort: Kassel
Todes-/Vermisstendatum: 09.05.1945
Todes-/Vermisstenort: in der Nähe von Prag

Died day after WWII. Is it just a fluke same forename/surname and birthday. I'm assuming him being an Oblt in 1944 means he would not be a Ofw in 1945?? unless seriously busted.

Otherwise, how else can I find Oblt Rolf Müller. There is a possibility a Rolf Müller became a military attaché for the DDR during the 60's/70's but have not found out more.

Any thoughts?

regards

Mark

Re: Lt Rolf Müller - Ju87 pilot

I'd go with the military attache. Works well in terms of ranks and age.

  • Müller, Rolf (Oberst)
1959 - 1962 Militärattaché in Albanien
1963 - 1967 Militärattaché in Vietnam1
968 - 1974 Militärattaché in Khmer
1975 - 1978 Militärattaché in Algerien

Would have been 58 when he left the service, normal age for a colonel, I guess.

All the best

Andreas

Hmmm, could this be the same guy?

Look in lower right corner on page 2:

Hi Andreas,

Knew the attaché angle. The DTM link is very interesting. I need to speak to Dr Holgar Steinle to find out more.

Thanks for that.

Mark
