Hartmann Grasser 3./JG152 Bf109D-1 markings?

I have been researching this topic, and have found these 3 pics from that unit (attached).
The caption on the first photo reads "Leutnant Grasser next to its Bf109D".
If this is suggesting it is his a/c, then I'm not so sure this is correct.
I suspect the a/c in the 3 pics is the same - and I suspect it is GrK Karl-Heinz Leesemann's (various spellings of this name exist).
Any thoughts on this.
If it is Leesemann's a/c, does anyone have information on what markings Grasser's a/c carried?
Grasser was shot down on 24/9/39 and had to force land in a Bf109D-1 - is there any information available about this aircraft?
Thanks
Peter

Re: Hartmann Grasser 3./JG152 Bf109D-1 markings?

Hello Peter,

according to the Jagdfliegerverbände Teil 2 all three photos were taken on September 17, 1939 on the airfield Biblis, base of the I./ZG 52. This unit was renamed on September 24, 1939 in Jagdgruppe 152 (JGr 152, not JG 152!).

Photo 1: Lt Hartmann Grasser in front of a Bf 109 D-1 of the Gruppenstab, not his personal aircraft.
Photo 2: The "Winkel Dreieck" of Gruppenkommandeur Hptm Wilhelm Lessmann.

The emergency landing of Lt Grasser on September 24 near Bingen, damage 30%: Werknummer and code of his Bf 109 D-1 are not known.

Regards
Leo
