Josef Heinzeller

Does anyone have any extra information on this pilot? He was with JG 137 and I(I)/LG pre-war (and was part of the Luftwaffe aerobatic team); 5/JG 3 up to Aug 41 where he shot down 26 ac (I can only find 25 kills) and was awarded the Ehrenpokal. He then moved to 3/JG 2 and shot down a further 11 ac (I do not have any kills prior to 19 May 42) and was awarded the DKiG. A spell in 1/Jagdgruppe West followed after which he was posted to I/JG 54 in Apr 44 (1 and 2 Staffel) where he shot down another 4 ac and was possibly wounded on 30 May 44. His last kill was, according to me, 27 Oct 44 which could have been his 41st kill.

Re: Josef Heinzeller

..guess you've looked at Meimberg's Feindberührung...? one or two personal anecdotes therein including details of the sortie over Dorset on 19 May 1942...( the oil spattered "yellow 13") ...but no 'real' info...
