Horst Petzschler autograph with a 5/28/44 date?

Hey guys,

I receently found a 30mm Mk108 shell that was signed by Horst Petzschler post war.

The odd thing is that he signed it as:

Horst Petzschler
JG3
5/28/44
Magdeburg


Though I know he was shot down once on this date...I cannot see any reason for him to mention this date. I know it was the last day he was with JG3, before getting re-assigned...so that is the only reason I can think of.

Does anyone know of any events where he maybe signed his autograph this way? Maybe some sort of JG3 reunion?

In one of his Letters he has written shot down a P 51 28. May 1944 near Magdeburg.

Greetings Peglar

Maybe he signed the 30mm shell for the P-51 pilot he shot down?
