Victory Fw. Siegmann 2/NJG 6 12.9.1944

Gents,

Does anyone have any additional info on the above victory?

On 12.09.44 Fw. (First name?) Siegmann of 2./NJG 6 is recorded as shooting down a Lancaster in grid AQ-AR 4.000 m. altitude [Haguenau] at 22.40 hours.

From a quick search it would appear to be Lancaster I LM137 UM-G2 of 626 Sqn. RAF.

It was lost 12/13.9.1944 on a raid to Frankfurt.
Cause of loss not established. Crashed 22:40 at Plittersdorf, 4 km NW of Rastatt. (this is 28 Km east of Haguenau as the crow flies).

Those killed are buried in Durnbach War Cemetery:

F/O D.R.B.Thorpe PoW.
F/O G.T. Bolderston RCAF (2nd Pilot) murdered by civilians.
Sgt F.C. Foster murdered by civilians.
P/O A.C.L. Cox KIA.
F/Sgt S.E. Dunnett murdered by civilians.
Sgt J. Peart PoW.
F/S R.H. Cross PoW.
F/S L.F. Beattie KIA.

Thanks

Ian
