Hptm Johannes Geismann

Could anyone tell me when Hptm Johannes Geismann (DKiG, RK) remustered as a nightfighter pilot and what nightfighter unit(s) did he fly with (IV/NJG1 and/or IV/NJG6?).

He was awarded the RK on 21Dec42 whilst serving with 1/KG77, prior to that he flew with 1/Kü.Fl.Gr.606.

Regards

Andy Fletcher

Hi Andy,

Johannes Geismann became nightfighter pilot in late 1944.

Best regards,
Mikhail.

Andy,

According to the brief bio in Obermaier's "Die Ritterkreuzträger der Luftwaffe, Band I," Geismann was posted to IV./NJG 1 at the end of 1944. He flew mostly night ground attack missions and by war's end had become a Staffelkapitän, although which staffel is not mentioned. He claimed no arial victories.

Tom
