Helpi identifying RK-träger name

Dear all,

I have tried, but got no joy in identifying the name of the RK-Träger....the other name seems to be Oblt. Neumann (a common name in German language)....so do not manage to find the unit.

Any help most welcomed.

Adriano

Re: Helpi identifying RK-träger name

Hello Adriano,

December 1942 Leutnant, 18 May 1943 Ritterkreuz , June 1943 Oberleutnant, January 1944 Hauptmann, May 1945 Major.
There is a book Erhard Jähnert "Mit dem Stukageschwader 3 an der Ostfront" ISBN-13: 9783803500021, ISBN-10: 3803500028.

Re: Helpi identifying RK-träger name

A very good reply Leo. Is the following comment from amazon.de accurate?


"The original of Jähnert's book was published in 1992 under the title "Mal oben - mal unten". The two-volume Flechsig edition was revised in terms of language, but the text otherwise only printed larger to make 2 volumes out of it. Annoying, I find that the attachments were not included, which are in the original edition, including copies of Jähnert's flight book. Therefore, I would advise anyone interested to buy the single-volume original from 1992."




Best,
Ed

Hi Ed,

I don't have these books so I cannot confirm the review of the Amazon-customer.
On the market are the in 2010 published "Als Sturzkampfpilot an allen Fronten" Mal oben - mal unten Teil I 1935-1943 and "Mit dem Stukageschwader 3 an der Ostfront" Mal oben - mal unten Teil II 1943-1945.

Regards
Leo

Re: Helpi identifying RK-träger name

LEO and ED,

Thank you very much for identifying the signature on the back of the photo. It was taken at Budweis (České Budějovice). Date unknown, but in winter time...there are some Ju 87 B on the back (far away)...but will try to find the possible date...

A.
