Surviving Luftwaffe Aces and the Spitfire

Can anyone help with names of surviving Luftwaffe Aces, I am particularly interested in those that served on the Western Front, who may have come up against Spitfires in combat.

Julius Meimberg fought (and claimed) his share of Spitfires and was still alive last I heard.

Re: Surviving Luftwaffe Aces and the Spitfire

Thanks for the link, but wasn't the question about surviving?

Bob is alive, as far as I know. There is a picture of him with Hajo Hermann, Walter Schuck and other pilots in front of a preserved Me109 that was taken last year.
