Re: Loss of FW 190 A-5 W.Nr 2535
Wed Jun 2, 2004 16:01

Hi Jim,

Thanks for this loss, but it doesn't seem to be 'my' aircraft. The loss report is probably correct that Uffz. Kurth was flying W.Nr 2355, rather than W.Nr 2535.

My source is an ULTRA signal from 3 June 1943, and in summary it says:

Return from III./K.G. 101 includes 1 FW 190 crashed. Return includes note that FW 190 A-5 W.Nr 2535 (5T + DR) was given as off strength on 02.06.43 for the second time.

In a signal from a day later, it notes that two FW 190s of III./K.G. 101 had suffered ten per cent damage in crashes, one FW 190 had received five per cent damage in a crash, and one FW 190 had crashed and suffered an unknown amount of damage. One FW 190 had been ferried to a detachment at St. Andrea for repair, and another had landed at an airfield called Beau's [or something similar to this].

An earlier signal from 29 May 1943 noted that one III./K.G. 101 FW 190 had crashed.

If anyone has some more information about this unit's FW 190s, particularly loss data, I'd like to hear from them.

Andrew A.
