Victory List for II./ZG26 during the French Campaign


I just posted my "wants list" for I./ZG26 for the FC, and now I'm doing the same for II./ZG 26. I have no information on 6./ZG 26, so anything on that unit would be welcome. I addition, I know that 5 Staffel pilots claimed three victories on 15.5.40, but I don't know the pilot's names, the aircraft types claimed or the locations. I'm looking for the aircraft types claimed by Obfw. Kurt Rochel of 5 Staffel on 14.5.40 and 1.6.40, and the same thing for 5 Staffel pilot Fw. Hans Müller on 18.5.40.

I know that the following Stab and 4th Staffel pilots made claims during the May-June, 1940 period,but I have no dates, types or locations: Hptm. Ralph von Rettberg, Gr Kdr, and 4th St pilots Hptm. Herbert Lüttke, at least one victory, Fw Friedhelm Gierga, 3 victories; and Lt (first name unknown) Schön, Lt. Kurt Brügmann, Lt. Randonald Birkner and Fw. Kurt Rössler.

I have no locations for victory claims by any of the victories that I do have documented, so anything on this subject from a II./ZG26 pilot would be helpful.

Like I. Gruppe I'm also looking for any victory claims by BF of II./ZG26 during the FC.

Thanks for any help that you might be able to give on another difficult unit. Fortunately, III./ZG 26 is pretty well documented for victory claims during 1940.
