Seeking photos info for Hs126B, 4E+BK, of 2.(H)/13 Shot down by Moranes near Dessenheim, France on 19 April 1940

Hello,

Continuing with the Phoney War Sitzkrieg part of the Eagles Over Europe project, I'm trying to determine two things about this loss:

"19 April 1940: 2.(H)/13 Henschel Hs126B-1 (3027). Shot down by Moranes of GC II/7 during observation mission south of Neuf-Breisach and crashed near Dessenheim, France, at 10.37 a.m. BO Lt Wilhelm Hellmann and FF Gefr Hermann Meissner both killed. Aircraft 4E+BK 100% write-off."

1) Dessenheim is in France (Haut-Rhin) about six miles west of the German border. Since it went down somewhere in the border area, do we know for sure that it crashed on French territory?

2) Do photos exist of this crash and/or is more information available from French or German sources about this loss?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

I think there is a photo of this a/c (probably published in a book on French aces).

Regards

Robert
