SOURCES? - RAF & Commonwealth aircraft losses in Hungary and Austria, 1944Gentlemen, I am most grateful for the excellent and informative responses. I had a similar posting on Ruy Horta's Allied & Russian Discussion Board, and together responses from both sites have been most complimentary. Dick and Linzee, yes, I was aware of the fact that Gunby and Temples book only extended into 1942. Hopefully part 2 will be available to us soon. Dick, the NARA source for 205 Group sounds like a very useful source. Those kind of activities I believe match well with the types of penetrations and subsequent interceptions in that region in 1944. Pzulba, the books you so kindly list sound like a potential gold mine of information, especially detailed personal accounts of the losses I am interseted. The ISBN information will be most helpful in trying to track these down; in my case probably via interlibrary loan (my interests, expertise and personal resources are focused on the Luftwaffe). For all of you, I have copied below what is known of the pilot - Lt. Herbert Ludwig's - confirmed claims during the period of interest. Dr. Theo Boiten was most generous in sharing information with me and the information sought is noted with question marks (?). However, the list does not come out too well here regarding formatting, so if requested I can PM a WORD doc to any of you that is much easier to comprehend. In closing, appreciate any further information and commentary on my request to complete this pilot's abschüsse list. Many thanks, David Abschüsse List Lt.
