Re: 5./KG 55 names

Looks like

Lt. Kudicke and Hptm. Herrmann

deZeng and Stankey have a “Hans Hermann” from Stab/KG55 (page 399).

Couldn’t find a “Kudicke” in their list.

Regards, Thomas

Re: 5./KG 55 names

The Hermann listings on pp.399 and 400 are probably one and the same as "Hans" was often used as a shortened form of Johannes.

Sorry about Kudicke. We just never encountered his name in the documents or literature.

Re: 5./KG 55 names

Perhaps "Knobicke" or "Knolicke"?

Re: 5./KG 55 names

I believe it is Oberleutnant and Gruppenkommandeur Joachim Könneke who was serving with 2. and 5./Kampfgeschwader 27 "Boelcke".

Oberleutnant Könneke died in an airplane accident on 22.2./23.2.1945 at Linz. He is buried in the cemetery Sankt Martin/Linz.

I recently picked up his Wehrpas at auction and he is listed in the KG27 unit histories.

Regards
Jeremy

Thanks for the help, everyone. It at least has given some new ways of looking into the matter
