Hi,
Can anyone provide information on the unit and loss of Feldwebel Karlfrieder Schumacher who was killed in air combat on 31st May 1944
I know he waws a Feldwebel and Flugzeugführer in a Jagdgeschwader
and held the Deutschen Kreuzes in Gold,EK I und II, der Goldenen Frontflugspange, der Ostmed. u. d. Verwend.-Abz. but do not know with which unit he flew with and how he was killed. Could someone direct me to the most suitable text?

Many thanks

Rick

Hello! I just came across this forum, and saw some people know of Karlfrieder Schumacher.

I as wondering what info you could tell me beyond what is listed above. I h=am his sister's grandson, and am starting to look into my history. I know that he was shot down in '44 (I have a picture of him from Nov. '43), when he was 24, but know litle else about his service. I believe he has a grave site in Austria.

Thanks for any info you can provide!!
-Adrian
