Re: RUDI DASSOW

Larry deZeng and Doug Stankey have assembled an extensive short-bio list of Luftwaffe officers. The following is from their work, with a few tidbits added.

8.October 1943 Lt., Stab/ZG 26.
22.February 1944 Lt., 4./ZG 26. (There is some motion picture film, and some stills, of his return from a successful mission at this time, flying Me 410 “weiße 11”)
3.April 1944 Lt., Stab II./ZG 26 awarded the DKG.
11.April 1944 Lt., Stab II./ZG 26.
21.June 1944 WIA - Me 410 WNr.420509 (or, 420590?), 3u+MM.

Crashlanded with several SC50 bombs still on board, wich detonated in collision with ground. Gunner was killed, Dassow miracally survived.

Also, Rudi Dassow is seen on this Wochenschau:

Re: RUDI DASSOW

Any possibility to see a picture of this cup? Any date on it? The number of kills of Rudi Dassow are still up for debate as there is insufficient data on his claims.
