Re: French WW2 decimal score aces

...the new Clostermann article by Christophe Cony seems to indicate that Clostermann didn't score any shared aerial kills at all (?)

IMPORTANT

About French aces (not Clostermann) please email me as soon as possible at:

rof700@bluewin.ch


Repeat: it's important.

Thanks in advance.

Indeed, only shared ground victories according to Avions' article.

Re: French WW2 decimal score aces

Good morning Gentlemen,

I just learned from Christophe Cony's Clostermann article that Bernard Dupérier's real name was Bernard Sternberg de Armella (see post 1).

Cheers,

Michael

Re: French WW2 decimal score aces

Good morning Gentlemen,

I've had a very good time working through Christophe Cony's excellent Pierre Clostermann article in AVIONS.
It provides a vivid and detailed description of his life, many appealing photos and aircraft profiles as well as a list of 50 claims, 14 of which are confirmed destroyed in the air (all individual).

The following kills from older sources were omitted, possibly because the author has found out that they are not valid:
28.03.1945 He111 DES (1/2) confirmed victory in Public Offical Record archives (Ju88?)
05.04.1944 Bf109 DES (1/2) confirmed victory in Public Offical Record archives
05.04.1944 Bf109 DES (1/2) confirmed victory in Public Offical Record archives
05.04.1945 Ju88 DES confirmed victory in Public Offical Record archives
20.04.1945 Ju290 DES (1/2) admitted as confirmed with official citation by French Air Force
03.05.1945 Ju252 DES on take off, confirmed victory in Public Offical Record archives (Ju52?)
03.05.1945 Bf109 DES (1/2) shared with John Irvin Bay Adams
03.05.1945 Bf109 DES (1/2) shared with John Irvin Bay Adams (Fw190?)
no date Fw190 DES (1/2 or 1/4)
no date Fw190 DES (1/2 or 1/4)
no date Fw190 DES (1/2 or 1/4)
no date Fw190 DES (1/2 or 1/4)
no date Fw190 DES (1/2 or 1/4)
no date Fw190 DES (1/2 or 1/4)
no date Fw190 DES (1/2 or 1/4)
no date Fw190 DES (1/2 or 1/4)

Cheers,

Michael
