    Default Info Request - Three /JG53 Pilots. Malta 6 Feb 1942

    Greetings,

    This is my last resort!

    Has anyone a photograph and/or information on three ( I do have the fourth airman Oblt Helmet Belser) of /JG53 who shot down the three Blenheims of 21 Squadron off the Isle of Filfa, Malta, late afternoon of 6 February 1942.

    They were Ltn. Hans -Jurgen MOLLER; Oblt. WITTMEYER ( or Witmeyer); and Ltn. Herbert SOUKUP please.

    Photos can be sent to me at awarculus@xtra.co.nz

    Thanking you in anticipation,

    Digger.

    Hi Digger,

    Have you tried contacting Chris Goss and Jochen Prien over here?

    http://forum.12oclockhigh.net/forumdisplay.php?f=7

    Both have done books on JG 53 (though I think Chris' book was 1940-only), and both have responded to me in the past via PM on various aspects of their research.

    Might be worth a try.

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Soukop was still flying with 6 Staffel, JG53, when he was shot over Malta by Sqn Ldr Douglas-Hamilton on 15 May 1942 (Cull: Spitfires Over Malta, 2005).

    I swear that I have seen a photo of Soukop somewhere, but I can't immediately find it in my Malta-related collection.
    Interests include Spitfires in Malta 1942 and 460 Sqdn 1943-44 (including Black Thursday)

    Mark & Adrian,

    Many thanks indeed for your replies to my plea for assistance. I now have more to sort out.

    Cheers,
    Digger.
