Oblt. Dr. Werner Breigleb, NJG. 2 and 3. 1923-2019

Late, though sad news Dr. Werner passed away peacefully in late July. A JU 88 pilot who earned the DK. I Gold and the front flying clasps. Typically, a quiet reserved true gentleman who built a decent, productive life after the war. He was most surprised when a model company produced decals for one of his aircraft.
Saddens me that our organization is poorer, and that this is the third obituary I must post, consecutively.

Sad news indeed, one of the few night pilots still with us.

I always thought his first name was Walter, do I need to amend my records accordingly?

Thank you for the update.

Possibly, he changed his name post-war. He would not be the only one.

Anyway, during the war he was Oberleutnant Walter Briegleb.

Briegleb

Briegleb's first name was Walter and he did not change his name after the war.
