Uffz Gerhard Ruger Erpr.210 6/9/40

Hi guys

Uffz Ruger's Bf110 was shot down on 6/9/40. He did not survive the incident. His gunner Gft Edmund Ernst apparently wrote an account which I believe was published in a copy of "Wings" magazine.
Has anyone a copy of this article or at least advise issue and further details, please?

Cheers
Brian
