Hi,

Can anyone provide information on the unit and loss of Oberfeldwebel Josef Grauvogl who was a member of a nachtjagd crew and was lost on a mission on the 18th March 1944?

Thanks

Rick

Re: Information concerning the loss of Oberfeldwebel Josef Grauvogl - nachtjager - killed 18.03.44

18-3-1944 I./JG 301

Reichenau an der Rax (3 km west of), Neunkirchen district (Austria)

Nach Luftkampf bei Heimflug versuchte Notlandung, Absturz

While flying home following aerial combat, crashed in a failed emergency landing

Bf 109 G-6 W.Nr. 15478 100% damage

Ofw. Grauvogel, Josef gefallen

base: Neubiberg airfield



source: Reschke, JG301&302 page 48







Apparently this was a daylight operation, because JG 301 was not active during the night of 18-19 March when RAF Bomber Command raided Frankfurt am Main.
