    [​IMG]

    He was shot down in hisBf 109E-4/B, Wnr. 3726 of 6./LG 2. The aircraft was damaged by fighter attack and crashed at 1130 on the 5th of October 1940 in Sussex,the exact location varies from book to book.Feldwebel Erhardt Pankratz was wounded and taken as a PoW.

    Three navy heros introduced in Mainich newspaper dated July 8 1942.
    The first guy on the top is Saburo Makino.
    No photos of his fellow Sueo Sukida regretly.
