Question Hptm. Hans Eder in Italy

Hello!
Unfortunately I don't yet have a big library including loss lists. Therefore this question.
I seek information on a Hptm. Hans Eder, who fell january 13. 1943 in aerial combat in Italy.
He was decorated with the Spanish Cross in silver, EK 2 and other decorations.
He was a fighter pilot and a leader of a JG, Gruppe or Staffel???

I cannot find him in my Condor Legion books or in my JG material.
Help and thank You in advance.
Christian

Hello,


Hptm. Eder was killed on 13th January 1944 in the cockpit of Bf 109G-6 WNr. 410544 (?) during a combat flight. Location given as 10,5 km east of Rome, Via Gasilina. He was Gruppenadjutant of I./JG 4.

I hope this helps a little,

Ota

Re: Hptm. Hans Eder in Italy

Just a small correction: it's Via Casilina, with a "C" (original German sources are not too reliable with spelling Italian place names!)

It was one of the principal roads into ancient Rome and the name stuck for a few more centuries.
