I'd say he's Willi Cryns of 7./KG27 DKiG 23 December 1942.
Started in Spain as Uffz. bordfunker in the 3.K/88 and became pilot with officer rank in WWII.

Cheers

Dear Fran,

thank you very much!
Are there more informations about Willi Cryns?
About his career or did he fly with other units?
I only know photos of him as BF in KG 27.

Regards,
Sven.

7./KG27 'Boelcke' unit badge. I'd say it's the same.

Hi Fran,

he's the same. Thank you very much for your scan.
He had his 100 FF in France as Ofw, that is sure.
More informations are always appreciated.

Regards,
Sven.
