    Good morning,

    I found the remains of a Junker 88 shot down on 6 January 1944 at 19H30 GMT close to Toulouse (South West of France), while on approach to Francazal airfield.
    This JU88 was shot down by a mosquito and I have the name of the mosquito pilot.

    Now, I try to know more about this JU88 : how could I obtain the names of the crew, the aircraft S/N, the markings, the KG number, a copy of the Luftwaffe tag mentionning this crash ?

    Anyhelp welcome.

    Hi Gillies,

    I consulted the Junkers production list and could not locate the actual aircraft.

    Have you researched KG30 "Adler" based at Istres in January 1944 ?
    Haupt Schulz was the C/O. This was the only Ju-88 unit in Southern France at the time. Most others were in the Eastern front, or northern Norway.

    Maybe a Google search for KG30 will throw up some more facts ?

    Thanks for your answer, I shall search KG30 on google but I am afraid it is not precise enough.

    I also know there were other KG in the area : for instance KG76 in Bordeaux.

    I would love to get is the names of the crews : for this, the best would be to go to the german files, but I understand it is very difficult.

    If somebody has an idea to find any data on this JU88 shot down on 6 Jan 1944 in Toulouse area, I would be delighted.

    Gilles
