Flieger Uffz Rolf Enders

Working my way thru a set of index cards used by the Germans in Denmark to record those they laid to rest in Jylland, Denmark this flyer has come up:
Flieger Unteroffizier Rolf Enders born on 21/6-1923.
Truppenteil: Frontfliegersammelgruppe Quedlinburg.
Erk. M.: 6./Flg.Ausb. Rgt. 24 Nr 117.
On 12.9.44 he was found washed ashore on the beach of Faarup Klit south of Lökken. Reason for death: Tod durch Ertrinken. Flugzeugsturz.
He was laid to rest in Frederikshavn cemetery.

Kriegsgräberfürsorge gives the day of finding him as his death date.
Does anyone have any idea about where he belonged and what happened and when ?

Re: Flieger Uffz Rolf Enders

Interesting case. I have the following loss:
1944-06-10, 2./NJG 7, Ju 88 A-4, 301464, D9+FK, Raum Paris
Flugzeugführer Olt Rösemeier, Rudolf, vermißt
Beobachter Uffz Enders, Rolf, (* 1923-06-21) vermißt
Bordfunker Uffz Hensel, Heinrich, vermißt
Bordschütze Ofw Böhlke, Alfred, vermißt
Absturz infolge Nachtjägerbeschuß. Bruch 100 %.

According to www.ww2.dk I/NJG 7 was at that time at Fl.Pl. Münster-Handorf. If this Ju 88 was operating on Paris area, how one of the crew ends up at Denmark. It is possible only if the aircraft was shot down over the North Sea. Can anyone confirm location of this loss, perhaps from British nightfighter claim list?
Also the EKM is strage. He should have had EKM 51597/109 and not that old one. Maybe the number was found in some documents and not from a dogtag.

Matti
