Bockl...Boeckl...Bockel JG26/JG7

Hello

How is his name really written? 12/JG26
Bockl (source Caldwell/JG26 p.493) ??
Boeckl(source Caldwell/JG26 p.532) ??
Bockel (source Foreman/Harvey/Combat diary Me.262 p.195) ??

How many claims ? very confused!only one numbered!

Source:Caldwell
( .)24/02/44=B-17 N.W.Lingen 12.30 .... (a)
( .)25/02/44=B-17 N.Rethel 12.10
( .)01/04/44=B-24 N.W Reims 11.50 ....(b.)
(5.)13/04/44=B-17 unknown ... (c)
(.)24/04/44=B-17 S.Munchen 13.45
(.)24/04/44=B17 N.Murnau 14.00 ... (d)
(.)25/05/44=P-47 Neufchateau 08043
(.)28/07/44=Mitchell Lisieux 20.08 conf.unknown
(.)06/08/44=Halifax N.Paris 12.10 conf.unknown
(.)12/09/44=P-38 W.Bonn 16.05

Source:T.Wood
(a)For T.Wood,it's a P-47 (N.Twist) ???
(b) un.conf BUT Anerk n°16 ?? Strange!
(c) No claim
(d) Only one (S.Starnbergersee)

Source:Foreman and Co:+12 claims (not so sure!)

If the 13/04,it's his 5th (Caldwell),he would have got his first with another unit?....and wich?
A lot of shadow zone concentrated in one "guy"!

Any ideas?
B.Regards
Michel

Re: Bockl...Boeckl...Bockel JG26/JG7

Correct is Böckl, where there are two dots above "o" (umlaut). If your keyboard has not such letter, correct is Boeckl.

Re: Bockl...Boeckl...Bockel JG26/JG7

Hi Michel,

Foreman & Harvey, Combat Diary, (1995), p.108 and p. 370 ascribe a claim of a Mustang to a Fw. Boeckel of III./JG 7 on 23.12.44. (Umlaut in text.)

best regards,

Jim

Re: Bockl...Boeckl...Bockel JG26/JG7

According to Johannes Mathews Albert Böckl claimed 11 victories of which one was not confirmed (a B-17 on 13 April 1944)

His claim on 24 Feb 1944 was a P-47

Otherwise the Caldwell list is correct and also the added claim taken by Karoband from the Foreman/Harvey book

Cheers
Stig

So!I know understand the "history" of the keyboard!
Its score must be revised downwards,many of its claims are unfounded.

Thank you
B.Regards

Re: Bockl...Boeckl...Bockel JG26/JG7

If you have a desktop PC, to get German letters, hold down the Alt key and enter the numbers on the number pad on your right.

Alt 0223 = ß

Alt 0228 = ä

Alt 0246 = ö

Alt 0252 = ü

Alt 0196 = Ä

Alt 0214 = Ö

Alt 0220 = Ü

and if you are quoting from the British ULTRA messages in DEFE 3 you will need:

Alt 156 = £
