Gabszewicz in France

I have found two more claims for Aleksandr Gabszewicz in France but suspect they are mistakes...

24 May 1940 Do215

5 June 1940 He111

In both instances this is recorded as the only victory in France and therefore I assume both entries are incorrect?

I also found that his victory on 1 June 1940 was recorded as a Do17...?

regards

Keith

Hi!

I think 24 may and 5 June are mistakes. The 1 June is real but it was a He 111.

Best regards.

Re: Gabszewicz in France

Look like there has been lots of misconception, that he claimed a Do 17 with GC III/10 flying a Bloch MB.152. But he wasn't flying with GC III/10 but with DAT, from Lyon and claimed a He 111 flying a MS.406 (on 1st of June).
I wish I had on hand my books on the subject to give you more details.

Yep he was with GCMP on 1 June 1940, and the He111 was apparently from 1./KG55. The other claims seem to have come from errors.
