FW58 II./JG5 shot down by own gunfire 14/4/42

Hi guys

What do we know about the loss of the FW58 and its crew, Fw Alfred Drossell and Ogfr Gerhard Kiese? Believed shot down by German ship flak. Both killed.

Thanks in advance
Stay safe
Brian

Both shown as pilots on GQM , while VDK shows Alfred Drossel born 13.01.1913 buried Trondheim-Havstein . There are two entries for Gerhard Klesa both with the same birth and death dates 17-11-20 and 14-04-42 one shows born Stassfurt Halle missing 30 km south of Bergen buried Salla Russia , while the entry with less details shows buried Trondheim- Havstein
