3./KG 27 loss 10.02.1941

Does anybody happen to have more precise information about the He 111 lost by 3./KG 27 on 10th February 1941 than provided in Weiss' chronicle?
I'm looking for the Werknummer and Kennung of this aircraft.

Re: 3./KG 27 loss 10.02.1941

Hello Maciej,

thank you for the interesting sources. Three weeks later Lt Heinzl and his crew were lost.

Gen.Qu. loss report from 5 March 1941:
3.3. I./KG 27 Feindflug Ort: Unbekannt, Ursache: laut Funkspruch Beschuss durch Jäger, Notlandung in Südirland.
He 111 H-5 3664 1G+HL 100%
F Lt Heinzel (divergent spelling), Alfred vermisst
B Fw Voigt, Arthur vermisst
Bf Fw Hengst, Rudolf vermisst
Bm Uffz Rister, Gerd gefallen
Bs Gefr Galler, Max vermisst.

In the „Luftwaffe Kracker Archive“ (based on „Jägerblatt“ 4/2004) is noted:
Heinzl, Alfred Lt
POW 3 March, 1941 after aerial combat with Hurricanes over Tuskar Rock during an anti-shipping mission at Port Townsville in the Irish Sea. Engine damage and one seriously wounded crew caused them to make a force landing at Rostoonstown Strand, County Wexford Ireland. The four survivors destroyed the ac before being captured. Remaining crew: Fw Arthur Voigt (POW), Obs; Fw Rudolf Hengst (POW), R/O; Uffz C. „Gerd“ Rister (DOW shortly thereafter; bur Glencree Cem. Gr 13), Mech. And Gefr Matthias „Max“ Galler or Galle (POW), Gnr. All were interned at the Camp Curragh, Kildare Co. Ireland.

Regards
Leo

Hello Leo,

Yes, I'm aware about this too. However, in that case they flew a different a/c. The one force-landed in Ireland wore a name "Die 5 Schreckensteiner III", whilst the a/c supposedly damaged on 10.02.1941 was named "Die Vier Schreckensteiner II" [source: photos in Weiss' book].

Regards,
Maciej
