Default LW DKIG holder Gerd Blume ????

hello fellow collectors,

Among the photos I received today is also a lot of pictures belonging to
a DKIG holder of the luftwaffe. Al the sketchy information I have is the following:

OLT Gerd Blume or Gert Blueme
Pilot JG 51 Eismeer
Born 5-7-1919
Died 23-5-1942

Ehrenpokal 1-12-1941
DKIG 2-7-1942 (awarded after his death)

Any help / comments are welcome !!!!

regards
Peter

According Scherzer's book on LW DKiG holders he was with KG 51 "Edelweiss". He's named as Gert in that book and on the volksbund database but Gerd in the Ehrenpokal lists. Born at Schwelm, died at Charkow.

Gert was the fiancée of my mother , he was kia on 23.5.1942. When my mother died in 2001 my brother sadly put all (4 ) original Gert Blume pictures in her coffin. I did not know that, because if- I had rejected that move. Well, they are all lost by now 6 feet under the grass. I have nothing left but the one picture copy that shows his temporary grave from the KG51 book.
Please see my latest research on the crash site of Gert Blume here:

If you can help me with all infos on G.B. I `d be very pleased.
Cheers
Egbert

P.S. Weinsoldner's PM is full, his last activity was 6 months back - if anybody still knows how to contact him, please let me or him know!!!!!!!

When my mother died in 2001 my brother sadly put all (4 ) original Gert Blume pictures in her coffin. I did not know that, because if- I had rejected that move. Well, they are all lost by now inside the coffin. I have nothing left but the one picture copy that shows his temporary grave from the KG51 book.
Please see my latest research here:

So if you can help me with all your infos on G.B. I `d be very pleased.

P.S. Weinsoldner did not log-in since more than 6 months. Does someone has any knowledge on how to contact him otherwise? He does not respond to emails sent via this forum.
