Re: Ltn. Walter Wolfrum victory #18, 3.11.43 - question

Hi Evgeny,

Wolfrum's book ("Unbekannte Pflicht" by 296 Verlag) lists this victory as follows:
#17 - Jak-1 - 02.11.43 - PQ 1332
FYI, #16 was achieved on 22.10.43, and #18 was on 06.11.43.

Unfortunately, Wolfrum doesn't provide any details in the narrative about his 17th, 18th and 19th victories. No details about his aircraft either, except for the action on 22.10.43, when his 109 was severely damaged by two heavy-caliber shells (one in the wing and one in the fuselage behind him.) It somehow held together and he was able to fly it back to base at Ursin and make a successful belly-landing.

Hope that helps,
Leon Venter

Are You sure about 25 iap?

It flew last combat mission in september 1942. Then it stood at Caucass region on the border with Turkey, till the end of war.

Anyway, I have no victims on 3.11.43, wich could fit with Wolfrum's claim. Possibly, it was on 2.11.43.

Regarding his flight log it was on 02.11.1943 not 03.11.1943. He flew an Bf 109G-6, "< 1" in the time frame 14.25 - 15.35 p.m. from Usin. The task was " Freie Jagd Dnjeperknie, Luftk. m. vielen Jak - 1".
