Fw Heinrich Ott, stab KG 2

Unfortunately I don't have any access to 'Der Luftkrieg in Europa 1939 - 41' so hopefully someone out there can help.

I have it noted down that on 1/9/39 Fw Heinrich Ott of KG 2 stabstaffel was lost along with his aircraft as a result of ground fire. The thing is this doesn't match up with what I have been told of the geschwaders losses on this day - in fact, I've not got a loss like this reported anywhere for KG 2 campaign in Poland.

Any help sorting this out would be greatly appreciated.

Adam

Hi,


the aircraft from stab/KG2 was damaged by ground fire (damage level 20%). This ground fire fatally wounded the observer Fw.Heinrich Ott.

Not to be pushy, but can you give me details of the crew's mission?

Thanks again.

I have only: ...together with a/c from II/KG2 staff flight attacked airfield in Małaszewicze (Terespol) in the vicinity of Brześć nad Bugiem (Brest Litowsk). In the north of Brzesc ground fire reached one Do17Z and fatally wounded the observer Fw.H.Ott. Dornier returned to base with damage level 20%."

Regards

Robert
