Chris, that is a strange pic. Wonder if it was a "fun " picture. He was obviously very fond of his political affiliation. J

He flew over a 100 operational missions during the Norway campaign in an ME 110 and was shot down behind enemy lines in Russia flying an ME 109, returned via escape and evasion.

Hello All,

This one is from a photo album of the soldier's "time in service." What is especially interesting is that the album documents his time from the HJ, through two units ("30" and "133" chainstiched onto his shoulder boards) and then to this photo; with no evidence of his having time in the Luftwaffe. Yet, he clearly has a LW GAB, while one of his buddies as an IAB...

Enjoy,

Eric

Thanks, Tom.

If he was, there is no evidence in his photo album (~182 photos from HJ through that picture).

The Luft flak badge is a strange partner with the minesweeper ! Most Luft guys awarded Navy badges were crews from Recon. groups. Tom
