Re: The opponents of Gert Framm, JG 27

Not really important but the rank of Maurice Romey is Adjutant.
His nice biography written by Alain Coste is in the issue n°120 of Avions (2003)

Hi Nick,
In relation to L8748/OM-K of F/O R C Rotheram & crew all KIA, this is incorrect... I met Ronny Rotheram in England in 2000 and I can assure you he was well alive.

Claim 5 is very early for a Spitfire.

I was in touch with Framm in 1991. He had very little and not much to say
