Hptm. Herwig Knüppel II./JG26

Oberleutnant Herwig Knüppel: 8 victories in the Spanish Civil War and 3 kills in WWII.

Hptm Herwig Knüppel was Gruppenkommandeur of II./JG 26 from 28 June 1939 to 19 May 1940 when he was KIA.

What can be found about the combat in the German archives about him that day when he was KIA ?


Cheers

According to Prien's Jagdflieger Vol III and Don Caldwell's books, he was KIA in Luftkampf with Hurricane from 615 Sq. (F/O Eyre).
