ZG1 claims Oct.1942 Tuapse area

Hello,

were there ZG1 pilots' claims in the Tuapse area (34 Ost Qu.95xxx) on 4-9.10.42, except Börger's claim on October 6?

Best regards,
Andrey

Re: ZG1 claims Oct.1942 Tuapse area

Let me put the question differently. Is there any certainty that Börger's claim was the only Bf110's claim in the Tuapse area in those days, or could there have been others? What sources are there on this issue?

Best regards,
Andrey

Re: ZG1 claims Oct.1942 Tuapse area

Hi Aundrey

ZG1 starts using the daily mikrofilm system on 27th July 1942, the typed-out Staffel claims prior to this have never come to light.

THe last daily mikrofilm entries are for 16th July 1944. Between these two date , all the daily entries survive with the exception of January 1944, but a sub mikrofilm listing staffel claims does exist, but only giving date and time.

There is one other entry for your timeline:-

6th October 1942 Lt Kurt Krämer of 1./ZG1 claims a SB-2 at 1130 hrs 4000 metres altitude.

Kind Regards

Johannes

Re: ZG1 claims Oct.1942 Tuapse area

Hi Johannes,

thank you a lot! Comprehensive as always.

My question was prompted inter alia by the fact that a single-seat Il-2 was downed by Bf110 on 7.Oct.42. The pilot baled out after crossing the frontline, and perhaps the Germans didn't see their success.

Is the list of Bf110's claims in the well-known files of Tony Wood complete?

Kind regards,
Andrey
