He is mentioned in the Bodenplatte book as an Oberfeldwebel and Bordfunker who was to take part in the operation. See page 192.

Hello donitz1980,

in October 1942 Ofw Steinadler had received the „Deutsche Kreuz in Gold“. In mid-November 1944 he joined 8./NJG 5 (crew of Hptm Bobsien). On 1 Jan 1945 Bobsien was a pathfinder pilot for Stab/JG 6 and II./JG 6.
On 4 March 1945 / Operation Gisela the crew was missing, probably ditched in the North Sea:
Ju 88 G-6 WNr. 620651 8./NJG 5 C9+CS.
F Hptm Hans-Joachim Bobsien
Bf Ofw Hans Steinadler
Bf Uffz Fritz Dessemeier
Bs Obgefr Franz Purth
(GenQu loss return 19 March 1945 item 40).

Regards
Leo

Very interesting find. I'm still hoping that my uncle's Pokal turns up one day.

I notice he had the DKiG in 9 Staffel of an unknown KG; maybe his EKM might help?

Ofw. Hans Steinadler was born 22.03.1915 in Breslau. This must be his EP. He was the only one who washed ashore. Now buried Wittmund, Grave 27.
