Franz Dörr JG5

Hi,

The excellent Career Summaries – Luftwaffe Officers 1935 – 1945 Section A – F by Henry L.deZeng IV and Douglas G.Stankey (version 01.04.2019) mentions that Franz Dörr (DOB: 10.02.13 in Mannheim) was during 1939-1940 Aufklärungsflieger and that he was transferred to 1.(Eins.)/Erg.Gr./JG3 c.04.41 and later to JG5. He was credited with 437 combat missions and 128 air victories.

Was he the observer of the Hs126 of 2.(H)/23 which crashed on 14/05/1940 near Jehonville, Belgium ?

Thanks in advance !

Luc

Salut Luc,


It seems yes but only have Uffz. Dörr, without first name.
Regards,
Franck.

Hi Franck,


Thanks for the reply.


The Battle of France, then and now, by Peter D. Cornwell, mentions on page 277 : Uffz F.Dörr reportedly slightly wounded, pilot unhurt.


Best regards


Luc
