    Dieter Gerhardt standing proudly beside the tail of his Bf 109.
    One can see the fresh mark of his first score : F/Lt Gunn's Spitfire.
    The photo was probably taken during march 1942 in Jever.
    Heinz Knoke intercepted and damaged this Spitfire, then he was
    blinded with the oil escaping from Spitfire. It is Dieter who finished the Spitfire.
    In numerous other air forces this victory would have been shared.
    Heinz Knoke, frustrated, always considered it as his first victory.
