Johannes, I can (albeit a little late) some additional infomration on Ofw. Willi Frös;

Actually, he was only lightly wounded on 21-June-1944 and was in action the following day, claiming a B-17 NW of Neubrandenburg at 0940 hrs. I have him on continued operations with his regular Bordfunker Gerd Brandl in 6./ZG 26 until 17-July-1944; from that date Brandl flew with a Lt. Tauscher although, I have nothing on Willi Frös from that date forward.

I can also confirm that the linked image does indeed show Brandl on the left and Frös on the right.

Better late than never.

Regards Richard.

Richard, the claim was on the same day June 21st, but indeed he was only slightly injured on 21.6.44. At the end he was with IV./JG 3.

A (very annoying) date error on my part John.

Slightly off topic from Frös; do you have any information on a Lt. Tauscher of 6./ZG 26 who flew with Fw. Brandl from 20-07-1944 at all?

Regards Richard.
