Ju 52 crash with mechanic Ludwig Hain involved

Hi,
i'm currently working on the memoirs of Fw. Ludwig Hain. He was a mechanic in a Ju52 crew in russia and became later pilot in a sea reconnaisance unit in norway. In his memoirs he mentioned a crash with his Ju52.
According to the text, the AC was involved in the supply mission of Ilmesee, so 1942 to early 1943. The Ju 52 was shot down and crashed near Orscha Airfield (About 15 miles NE). The crew survived.
Firstnames of other crewmembers: FF Max, Bernhard, Hans.
I would be interested in the crash date and the unit.
I know, the given info is not very detailed.

Thanks a lot

Lino

Not sure if the following link http://tinyurl.com/7lqz53w
refers to the Ludwig Hain you are inquiring about, it is in German and too big to translate into English using the language translators I have tried.

Kind regards

Ross
