information over Loss of Uffz. Hans Weigert - killed over the Atlantic 1943

Hi,

Can anyone provide additional details concerning the loss of Uffz. Hans Weigert who was killed in action 'over the Atlantic' on the 9th July 1943.
His sterbebild describes him as a Flugzeugfuhere in a bomber squadron.

Thanks

Rick
