Re: Wekusta losses

Oops! I forgot to put Ju in front of some 88s. also the Wekusta 3 loss should be 23 Apr 44 not 43. Also the 27 Aug 44 loss belonged to Wekusta 5 not 3.

This book has 1/SAGr 130 losing Bv 138s on 4, 14, 15 Nov 44 all shot down. Any more information on them?

Wekusta 7
3 feb 45 oder river recce last report near the town of Schwedt Ju 88
20 Mar 45 Ju 88G Lt Mayer shot down by VVS fighters near Altdoebern between Cottbus and Finsterwalde-Brandenburg
30 mar 45 Ju 88 shot down all KIA Harz Mountains near nordhausen.

28 Nov 42 lost western Med Ju88D 5M+G 430321 Hpt H Cleve and crew KIA. The book Seafire: the Spitfire that went to sea has on this date S/Lt D.
