Re: Ghostbombers updates

Nick - I found the note on the Ultra Air Digests very interesting. What a shame these aren't amongst the freely downloadable DEFE3 material.

Whilst posting, I should just also say a word of thanks for everything you've posted up on your site over the years on the Ultra topic.

Re: Ghostbombers updates

Hello Nick,

As always your input and articles are most interesting and a joy to read. In your 'published sources' at the end of the article about the II./NJG 6 in Italy, you refer to the alleged 6 victories as said/written by Gebhard Aders.
For your understanding it is good to know that his famous work 'History of German nightfighting 1917-1945' contains claims of nightfighter crews, which find their origin in the Nonnenmacher/Ring lists. These are known as a cocktail of many true claims but many fictional claims as well, just added to see later who used their compilation without given permission. One notorious example are the alleged victories of Reinhold Knacke (1./NJG 1), five in one mission (!) on 16/17 September 1942. There is no single piece of documentary support for this spectacular nocturnal fight...

All the best and keep up the good work! Marcel

Re: Ghostbombers updates

Nick, Would you happen to have any information about Unit 11/NJG5 my Grandfather Otto Karl Tillack was in that unit. The plane he was on on April 11th, 1944 was shot down and i was wondering if you had any info on that crash or pictures, or if you may have any information on the Unit he was in and or any pictures of he and the other men in his unit. the Pilot on the day of the crash was Karl Kades, not my Grandfather that day.
You may reach me or my Father which is Axel Otto Tillack"Camp" the son of Otto Karl Tillack via here or via our emails. Mine is: charlotterookswrites72@hotmail.com
and my Father`s is: alexrrcamp@gmail.com
Thank you in advance,
Char and Axel
