Chris Goss will become famous soon enough
Maj Alfred Hemm

I am trying to find out more about this officer, not helped by his PERS 6 records being hard to read. According to Larry and Doug, he was St Kap of 4.(F)/122 in June 40 (and did he take over from Hptm Günter Pannwitz?) and still in June 1941. He was promoted to Hptm 1 Dec 40 and then on 17 Jun 42 is posted to IV./KG 40. On 23 Aug 42, he is recorded as being St Fhr of 9./KG 40 but then the following month is Major Beim Stab in III./KG 40. 2 months later he is recorded as "looking after the business of Gruppen Kommandeur V./KG 40". However, he does not take command of V./KG 40 until 1 March 43 when he is promoted to Major. He has no air combat victories and then in October 1943 hands over to his Ia Hptm Horst Grahl. Larry and Doug then say he reappears with I./NJG 1 in late 1944 and at the end of the war is with Stab/NJG 1. Anyone add any meat to these bones? He is not to be confused with Maj Alfred Helm
