Oblt Johannes Brandenburg 2./StG2

According to his bio he was shot down over Krakow in Sep 39, baled out but evaded and did likewise in the Battle of France. Can anyone come up with dates? Matti has nothing as it appears he was unwounded.

Thanks Robert. Do you have a date then? This was taken from his bio in the Stuka RK book-I have nothing to match the latter one
