Sonderkommando Kunkel / Arthur Ewert claim on 27 May 1944

Good morning everybody,

I read in Pierre Babin's excellent book about the Wekusta 2 that Arthur Ewerdt (belonging to the Sonderkomando Kunkel) shot down on 2 May 1944 an aircraft in Toulouse area.

Would any of you have more information about this claim ?

NVM ? Aircraft type ? place ? etc...

Thanks a lot, and enjoy the summer

GC

Apologies for the confusion.

Gilles I am away from home today so if nobody answers in the meantime, I will answer then. From memory, his claim could not be matched

Re: Sonderkommando Kunkel / Arthur Ewert claim on 27 May 1944

Hi Gilles

I could only find two claims for the whole unit, both for Lt Artur Ewert:-

2nd May 1944 Halifax Toulouse area 0150 hrs 1000 metres altitude A.S.M
4th May 1944 Stirling South of Paris 0058 hrs 2500 metres

Regards

Johannes

Johannes

on the Toulouse raid, no aircraft was lost, so, I think that Arthur Ewert thought he had shot down a Halifax whereas it probably only damaged.

Thanks fro your help
