Paul Steindl

Hello,

Does anybody know when Paul Steindl (10 victories, KIA in January 1945 with JG26) started his fighter career (which unit, date?).

Thank you,

Roger Gaemperle

Re: Paul Steindl

He was with JG 54 in late 1940 thru at least the Balkans campaign. There are several well-known photos of him and his bomb carrying 109E on the ground and in flight. These photos ARE NOT from the Eastern Front in 1942 as repeated in way-too-many photo captions.

Re: Paul Steindl

Hello Jim,

Thank you for the interesting information. Could you tell me in which book I could find photos of him? Is by any chance a photo showing him with his oxygen mask?

His death notice in 1945 said that he was in action for over 5 years, so I assume he started his combat career already in 1939.

Kind regards,
Roger Gaemperle
