Information concerning loss of Felwebel Karl Zellner - 595 missions

Hi,

Can anyone provide information on the loss of Feldwebel Karl Zellner who was a German Cross in Gold Winner and flew 595 combat missions. I think he must have been a Stuka pilot but did not find anything on him when I searched on the board.

He was killed on the 13th September 1943 in the East.

Thanks

Rick
