Fritz Stendel photos and more 2-25-05

Hauptmann Fritz Stendel 6./JG 5
(Photos and documents, including a list of personnel and what appears to be a document giving brief accounts of late war activities by date.) I would be interested to know if what is shown could be a few of the missing pieces researchers have been looking for.

Hi,

Would somebody have an additional information about the pictures (from 6th to 10th) showing JG 53's Me 109 : date and place(s) of the pictures, type ( G ?) of the aircrafts ?

Many thanks to Ed for these pictures.

... and thanks for your answer

Pierre BABIN

Hi,

some comments about the JG53`s pictures:
- photo no.1 - it`s a white 1 from 7/JG53. It`s hard to say when this photo was made
- photo no.2 - white 6 from 1 Staffel may-june 1940
- photo no.3 - Hpt. Wilcke`s double chevron. Photo was made in january 1942
- photo no.4 - G-6 probably from 3/JG53 - but when and where?
- photo no.5 - stab I/JG53`s aircraft. Could be either 1939 or early 1940.

I hope this is a little step forward.

Regards

Robert

Photographs etc Fritz Stendel

Hi, guys.

As can be seen from the documents, these are copies of a report Stendel wrote to the Traditionsgemeinschaft or Traditionsgeschwader JG 5, probably based on his own personal recollections and/or logbooks etc.

Regards,
Andreas

Can any reader identify the code applied to the Fi 156 Storch in http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...em=6158028373?

Anyone else note the 4-leaf clover on the next to last 109?

@ Rabe ...it looks like GA+TC to me... but it is a difficult one to read

Thank you, Peter, for your assessment of the codes applied to the Storch.
An independent second opinion seemed a good idea in this instance!

Fi 156 SKZ

I agree with Peter, GA+T is the only group that seems to fit, being Kassel assembled Storchs. The last letter is to me the most difficult to pick out. If it is C, then the W.Nr. should be 5223, completed on 17.5.41.

Best Regards,

Artie Bob
