I guess it was the same man, as there are no other known ace named Schneider in NJG 3 (AFAIK) but the more I learn about Luftwaffe, the more aces I discover so I'm less sure than I was some time ago.

I am trying to find more about this man. It may well be he is (was - he passed away about a year ago) my maternal grandfather. Maddeningly, either for lack of interest or a form of post-war denial, my mother never spoke to me about her father's war record (*) and I only met him twice in my life, as I live in Australia.


(*) except that he was a pilot and had the rank of Feldwebel.
