nice colur pics mark ! Rall is an interesting chap although his last war efforts are a bit dismal in JG 300 a postion he was not well suited for at all. A great pilot taking on a full fledged Jagdgeschwader getting the hell blown out of itself on a daily basis and Rall having to do the dirty work of tyring to keep things in order and the unit emplaced at different airfields.

a good friend that passed away this June. RK Will Unger, a fantastic pilot flying SturmFw's....in one of the many Sturms he flew in IV.Sturm/JG 3

As time permits will have some other signed photos scanned and posted. I've always had a great deal of interest in Stuka KC holders. Amazing numbers of missions flown compared with Allied pilots. Below is a large format color photo of Franz Kieslich dedicated to me, he flew well over 1000 missions and won the Oakleaves.

Gentlemen,

I am in awe! to have had correspondence with these fine gentlemen must have been a highlight!

I agree, the Luftwaffe pilots were perhaps the most Chivalrous of the RK winners and the perhaps the most modest.

Keep them coming gents....

Has any of you had the honour of holding these gents medals in your grubby paws?

I once ( as a young boy) held the only ever, combattant double Victoria cross winner Captain Charles Hazlitt Uphams VC and bar and the rest of his medals on a medal bar...im my grubby little hands!! ( these medals are now in the Waiouru museum in the north island of New Zealand.)That was one of the most proudest moments of my life!

Regards

Paul
