Karl-Fritz Schlossstein 1918-2017

Dear Forum members,

Oberstleutnant a.D. and DKiG holder Karl-Fritz Schlossstein, long time Staffelkapitän of JG 5 Zerstörerstaffel, has passed away on 18 July. He was born on 28 February 1918, so he almost made 100 years. I received the sad news from his daughter.

I had the great priviledge to be his host when Mr Schlossstein visited Finland back in 2011. A true officer and gentleman, with amazingly good physical condition and memory. Based on several postcards received from exotic places and emails, I know that he continued to travel all over the world until end of 2016.

Best regards,
Raimo
