Hello:

Here is a qualification document for the Air gunner without lightning bolts but with a black wreath made out to Unteroffizier von Minden. This distinction was instituted in the Spring of 1944 and was not included in the his military estate.He flew with 11./Nachtjagdgeschwader 6 which operated from Romania and was deployed during the US Army Aircorps raid against the oil fields around Ploesti, Romania in 1943.

The German air defenses were established and commanded by Gen. Gerstenberg who became a POW when Romania switched sides and remained a Soviet POW until late 1955.

I have added a picture of this seldom seen qualification badge which was not included in Uffz. v. Minden's military estate but which I was finally able to locate and add to complete the estate. If not suitable in this thread please relocate.
