    Here is a pic of my former friend Günther B. he was stationed in the KG 26 and the places he were in during the war was Grosetto Italy, Montepellier France, Vaernes Norway. Iam not sure if he was a bordmechanic or only on the ground, as he told me, I did get the impression that he was. But he took alot of pics I wish to share some. But due too respect of the family, I can not put the family name. he let me copy all his pics, wich is from the early days with gliders and to the end with ju 88 he said his last plane was a Junker 188 A-3 with the code : IH-BT here in norway where they surrenderd.

    Best regards bordmechjunior.... 8)

    This shows G.B. in 13.4.44 probably in the south.

    See and enjoy the past of the once so large airforce wich had many frontiers...He took mostly pics of the everday life, since it was strictly forbidden to take pics on tecnical installations but , I think he took some anyway...
