Captain Arthur C. Fiedler Jr. - 2 claims ID

Good night to all members.

Does someone have matched those 2 victories of Captain Arthur C. Fiedler Jr. from 325th FG (Mayfair 35)?

15 Sept 1944 1 Ju-52 (Greece)
12 Oct 1944 1 He-111 (Hungary)


Any help in identifying those two victories are most welcomed.

Re: Captain Arthur C. Fiedler Jr. - 2 claims ID

Arthur C. Fiedler's victim on October 12, 1944 over Hungary was 14./KG.27 He 111H-16, WNr.162373, code: 1G+OY. Crew:

Ofw. Johann Ladinig pilot (+)
Uffz. Hosrt Laube observer (+)
Fw. Emil Pfeil gunner(+)
Fw. Eberhard Schieber radioman (later +)

Few years ago Arthur sent me a letter, in which he drawed his destroyed opponent for me and attached it to the sheet. Yes, this is Art Fiedler's personal drawing of his He 111 victim on October 12, 1944 over Hungary - as one of my most unique, personal relics. I think here I must share it with you guys :-)))

Cheers,
Gabor

Dear Gábor,

I do thank you for the precise match of Fiedler's claim against that He 111 over Hungary. Really appreciated, and the sharing of that drawing just show how Art was a true GENTLEMAN. I was glad to be in touch with him too, exchanging letters, etc.

Thank you again for the most helpful information.

OBS: And what about the DH-2 Project??
