Re: Viktor Moelders passed away.

I'm admittedly ignorant of the career of Viktor Moelders. How many victories was he credited with and what front(s) did he fly in? Was he shot down and made a POW during the war?

Thanks,
Kenneth

Re: Viktor Moelders passed away.

He served with 1./ZG1, and got 7 victories to june 1940. Then, briefly with NJG1, and then was transferred to his brother's Geschwader, JG51, as StaKa of fighter-bomber Staffel, 2./JG51. With this unit he got 2 more victories untill october 1940, when he was shot down and prisoned in England.

Re: Viktor Moelders passed away.

Please note he passed away in July 2010 so this occurred nearly 18 months ago & he did not have the Knights Cross
