Re: Loss Ju88 C-4 R4+NK W.Nr. 0385 of 2./NJG2 at München-Riem airfield on 28 September 1941?

I eventually came round to translating »Bruch« as the old RAF slang term "prang" which covered just about any degree of damage.

Re: Loss Ju88 C-4 R4+NK W.Nr. 0385 of 2./NJG2 at München-Riem airfield on 28 September 1941?

Gentlemen -thanks a lot for your useful feedback. The numerals 03(.)5 are clearly decipherable in the photo, the third numeral definitely is not a 5. I believed now that the third numeral is a 6 -which identifies the a/c as the one identified by Gerhard. Was W.Nr. 0365 definitely an A-4? The Verlustmeldung for this a.c on 31.5.42 only states '30% damaged' -was the Ju88 written off strength as a result?

BTW; the photo will be published in one of the upcoming vols in the NCA series sometime towards the end of this year, covering the Fernnachtjagd operations over Britain in 1940-41.

Cheers, Theo

Ha, totally confused now. And who was talking of Ju 88 A-4 (C-4 was basically A-5 F, ie Zerstörer conversion with recce capability). Besides photo has traces of White (MTO) band applied under K, so how this connects to UK operations is beyond my comprehension? I have seen this eBay photo and its saved under 0559.

No need to be confused Ed -the W.Nr. of the Ju88 in question is definitely not 0559, I've a high res scan of the original.

Cheers, Theo

I see, you ignore the White band then?
