Re: date of birth

Hi Oleg

With Grosse 15 September 1917......almost exactly hundred years ago, could still be alive?

With Kull 27 June 1913, he was in Spain with JG 88, then JG 20.

With Kiening 01 March 1915, again was in Spain with JG 88, then JG 76.

Kind Regards

Johannes

Unfortunately, all of them died: Kiening – 30.06.1941, Grosse – 13.01.1942, Küll – 31.03.1942.

Re: date of birth

Hi Oleg

I was beginning to think I sent you details for the wrong Grosse, but I have him with twenty-eight confirmed claims over Russian aircraft before being "injured" on 13th January 1942, awarded the DKiG on 27th March 1942 not posthumously it would appear, however I can find no more references for him past this time.....perhaps he died of his injuries?

Kind Regards

Johannes

Re: date of birth

Hi Johannes

13.01.1942 Fw. Egon Grosse on the fighter Bf 109F-2 W.Nr. 12731 «Braune 9» caused an emergency landing near the village of Morino (Pskov region, Russia) due to bad weather conditions, and was seriously injured and died in the infirmary of the city of Dno (Pskov region, Russia).
Where can I find out the birth dates of other pilots?

Kind Regards
Oleg
