Holtz landed on the muddy field to get his wingman, who was damaged by AA fire and crash landed nearby. He failed to take off because of the mud. Both were captured. Source, his interrogation protocole in TsAMO.

Birth/Death details of non Ritterkreuz 50+ aces

Hello Johannes

Not much but I can add that Karl-Heinz Cordes was born on 24 April 1920 at Greven and that Josef Quarda was born on 19 February 1923 at Wien. I hope this helps and I agree that any additional information on these successful yet little known aces would be great.

Horrido!

Leo

Hi Johannes.

I think the best way is to upload your archived files on a free file hosting (such as mediafire.com, filefactory.com... hundreds of them) and then provide the link in appropriate thread, so everyone could download these archives.

It would be a great pleasure if you share your fantastic materials with 12oclockhigh community

Hi

I'll get to work on it. I'll mention DKiG if awarded, trouble is that recording dates for this award end Autumn 1944, after that it's largely speculation!

Regards

Johannes

Re: Birth/Death details of non Ritterkreuz 50+ aces

Hi Guys

Firstly thanks to Craig, Nikita and Leo. All those below are known to have received the DKiG with the exception of Hannig, Tangermann, Koller and Arnold, though there is always the post recording of DKiG awards, so relying on personnal accounts, or photographic evidence road to follow here. Josef Quarde also appears not to have been awarded the DKiG, if so a record for him.
Clearly below Sinner should have been given the Ritterkreuz given his were in the West, his leadership qualities, and that he was an honest claimer!

Lothar Mai 44 in the East 1918-27th August 1943
Paul-August Stolte 44(8West, 4 viermots) 11th October 1916-10th October 1943.
Xaver Müller 44 in the East 29th November 1916-27th August 1943

Re: Birth/Death details of non Ritterkreuz 50+ aces

Thank you for the immediate answer.
How one can explain the discrepancy in the numbers of kills?
Is it overclaiming, bottleneck in the confirmation procedures during the war, or is it really new data unearthed that changed established situations?
