    Jan,

    any info on Walter Smejkal from IV/JG5 in this book? His father was Czech and mother German.
    He passed away this July.

    A bit of confusion here about ZG52. When did they serve in Norway? Seeing the pics in the section of "Scandinavian campaign" in Mr Vasco's book Zerstorer Volume 1, it seems that they were there in '40, still I don't find them in any lists supporting that. Admittedly, '41 and '42 is missing from the list above, but I can't find them on any loss lists either covering that period, '40 to '42... This would be I./ZG52.

    On the 26th of June 40 Stab I./ZG52 became Stab II./ZG2, 1./ZG52 became 4./ZG2, 2./ZG52 became 5./ZG2 and 3./ZG52 became 6./ZG2....

    So far I've only seen ZG26 and ZG76.

    As for the KGr.100, 15.4.40 - 16.4.40 at Jonsvannetsee, 15.5.40 - 22.5.40 Stavanger-Sola and 22.5.40 - 31.5.40 Trondheim-Vaernes. Is Jonsvannetsee, is this the same as Jonsvatn?

    Gutt, seeing that Lt Arthur Schubert's '88 was from the 7/KG-30, their Adler should be yellow, right? Was it coded 4D+CR, all in black or should it be 4D+CR?

    Just been informed that this machine had the code 1H+NK and the U-boat that picked them up was U-589.

    So, on 13.09.42 He 111H-6 1H+NK Wk. Nr. 7567 from I./KG26, emergency landed at sea, south of Svalbard. The crew Lt. Arnold Harnau (F) MIA Uffz. Werner Telgenwerth (B) MIA Uffz. Walter Kullick (Bf) MIA Uffz. Friedrich Trunner (Bm) MIA, was later picked by U-boat U-589. U-589 was later sunk on 14 Sept, 1942 in the Arctic Ocean south-west of Spitzbergen, in position 75.40N, 20.32E, by depth charges from the British destroyer HMS Onslow, and depth charges from a Swordfish aircraft of the British escort carrier HMS Avenger (Sqdn 825). 44 dead (all hands lost)".

    And don't forget Jan that Norway played host to the last operational Zerstorergruppen of the war, IV./ZG 26.


    Just thought I'd mention them... *cough.* :D
