Hi Larry,
could either be Maj. Schroeder or Hptm. Poetter. Not sure about exact timr frames they served as Staka.

Had a quick look in the KG 51 book which shows Hpt. Joachim Poetter awarded RK 16-4-1942 while serving with I/KG 77,

As of 12 Aug 40, Gr Kdr Maj Marienfeld, St Kap 7 Hptm Poetter, St Kap 8 Hptm Von Schenck, St Kap 9 Hptm Brandt. Work it back but I believe Poetter is your man

Thanks Brian and Chris,

Appreciate your time to research this for me. What's behind my question, is I'm trying to code into the EOE data base a photo that I think is the StaKap's a/c about the time of the Polish Campaign. Wanted to get the ID of the crew if I could. This definitely helps. Chris I'll be in touch shortly about my upcoming trip to Europe.

Regards,

Poetter's ac on 12 Aug was 9K+AR so it would appear he liked to fly A's but this is no guarantee-Marienfeld flew ED and Von Schenk KS-AD & AS were flown by other crews

Just to confirm the name of the Staka of 8. was really Schenk von Schweinsberg not just von Schenk correct?
