Information concerning the loss of Feldwebel Wastl Mayer 26.04.1940

Hi,

Can anyone provide me with information on the loss of Feldwebel Wastl Mayer who was killed on the 26th April 1940 in or over Nordseegeniet?

Thanks as ever,

Hi Rick,
I believe he belongs to 1. K.Fl.Gr. 506, a He 115 lost near Andalsnes over the Northsea, I had no crew names only that a Gunner was KIA.

Regards

Not so. I believe 'Wastl' was his familiar name as follows:

2.(H)/31 Henschel Hs126B-1. Crashed north-west of Rotenburg during night landing approach. FF Fw Sebastian Mayer and BO Lt Arthur Salm both killed. Aircraft 100% write-off.

I agree with Peter that "Wastl" is a german short for Sebastian,
but between Rotenburg and the Northsea big difference ?

Nordseegebiet = North Sea area (theatre of operations). Unit probably engaged in coastal watch duties.

Nordseegebiet, for a Sea-unit, that is understanble, but for the H.31 ,,,???

All these losses , 4 to 5, during night-flights

Luft QM's returns dated 28-4-40 has this as a Heimat flight on the 26th. crash by Rotenburg to unknown cause while on a 'Nachtplatzflug'. Perhaps the Nordseegebiet on the Fallen Card was wrong info. to the relatives ?

The crash actually occurred at Mulmshorn, north-west of Rotenburg, at 22.30 hours (CET).
