6/KG54, 8th August 1942.

Hi,

On 8th August 1942:
6/KG54.
Junkers Ju88A (5844). Night sortie to England. Shot down by RAF Beaufighter night fighter of 29 Squadron and crashed in the Channel 10 miles south off Dungeness, Kent, 10.40pm.
Oberfw. Helmut Hadderhorst, missing
Obgefr. Karl-Heinz Bischur, missing
Obgefr. Johann Bauer, missing
Obgefr. Karl Schmidt, missing
Aircraft B3+UP lost.

Can anyone tell me the crew positions?

Many thanks
Steve

Re: 6/KG54, 8th August 1942.

FF : Oberfw. Helmut Hadderhorst
BO : Obgefr. Karl-Heinz Bischur
BF : Obgefr. Johann Bauer
BM : Obgefr. Karl Schmidt

Radtke has this a/c as B3+YP and also
Hadderhorst as Haddenhorst
Bischur as Bischuer
Schmidt as Schmitz

Not sure what's correct.
