Ofw. Viktor Kemmer (KG53 / 6.NJG1)

Hi all,

I’m looking for information concerning Oberfeldwebel Viktor Kemmer.

Online I already found some information about a crash he was involved in. I have some questions about two crashes he was involved in.

1)Can someone confirm that Hptm. Sattler was the bordgunner and add the Observers name?

5/8/1943 He111H-16 W.Nr. 161221 Stab KG 53
BS Sattler, Hptm. Fritz -- gefallen
FF Kemmer, Ofw. Viktor -- verwundet
?? -- verwundet
** BF Fw. Thiele, Helmut -- gefallen
** BM Uffz. Eikmeier, Kurt -- gefallen
Absturz, South of Nawlja 100% F

2)In 1943/1944 he switched to a Nightfighter unit and was killed on 23.11.1944 as part of 6.NJG1. The crash he was killed in was probably an accident on a transport flight killing multiple officers in the crash. Can someone shed some light on this crash and the men involved in it? I don’t know if Ofw. Kemmer was the pilot on this flight or just a passenger.

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Thomas

In 1943-08-05 aircraft code was A1+BA.

He was killed:

Propellerschlag.

Dear Leo and Matti,

Thank you both for the provided information!
It is clear now to me that the information I had concerning his death and the involvement of multiple officers is incorrect.

I wish you both a nice weekend.

Kind regards, Thomas
