Re: FW190a-3 /A4 AGr123 in France 1943 1944.

Just one question : could someone confirm date of loss ( and hour ) of Fw Oskar Sahre , was it 13 or 14 March 1943 ? Possibly shot down by a 486 Sq pilot ? The date ( 14 ) seems to match with a Luftwaffe loss near Fecamp , pilot still buried with plane.
Any suggestion is welcome !

Many thanks for the pictures Melvin ,

However Thomas/Shores and Foreman put F/S Fitzgibbon's claim on 14 March , not 13 , hence my problem .
At last we have a Fw190 with missing pilot lost either on 13 or 14 March 1943 here , most certainly downed in the morning .

Hi 4./AG 123 also claimed some enemy aircraft, which will tell you some dates they were operatiing.

2nd June 1943 a mosquito at 1455 hrs Fw"Garve"
6th September 1943 B-17 at 1305 hrs Fw....cannot estalish name!
20th December 1943 P-47 1256 hrs X 2 Fw "Schuster"
20th December 1943 B-26 1258 hrs Fw "Schuster"
24th December 1943 B-26 1413 hrs Fw "Schuster"
24th December 1943 B-26 1413 hrs Fw....cannot estabilsh name!
5th January 1944 Spitfire 1555 hrs Fw....Cannot establish name!
8th June 1944 B-24 0800 hrs Fw Hans Schuster
10th June 1944 Spitfire 1737 hrs (100 metres altitude)Fw Hans Schuster

I really do suspect that those marked "Schuster" were by DKiG holder Hans Schuster!
