I do not think the spelling is correct......the name is not known in the VDK database and also not in Ancestry.....it looks odd....

Hi John,
Thank you very much for your reply.
You're right, I couldn't find it anywhere either.
I have a photo of him in the cockpit of a Bf 109. His name is written very clearly. Whoever wrote his name in the album probably made a mistake.
Thank you very much once again.
Regards, Tony

Matti and John,
It is super! Thank you both very much!
The incorrect name has a cross and only the year 1943.
Regards, Tony
