Default /JG53 pilots over Malta 6 February 1942

JG53 pilots off Malta 6 February 1942



While researching on two missing New Zealanders shot down in different Blenheim, Z7308 & Z9725 of 21 Squadron off the Island of Filfla, Malta 6 February 1942 of 21 Squadron (there was also a third aircraft shot down at the same time Z9823 same Squadron).
I have the names of the four JG53 pilots names involved.

Oblt Wittmeyer, Ltn. Herbert Soukup, Oblt. Helmet Belser and Ltn. Hans-Jürgen v Möller.
I do have the biography and photograph of Ltn.Soukup and would be pleased if anyone can assist with the biographies of the other three. Thanks.

It is believed Ltn. Möller was shot down Thursday 25 March 1943 and became a POW. Also that Ltn. Soukup was shot down over Hal Far, Malta 15 may 1942 and became a POW.

Should anyone have photographs of these men they could be sent to [email protected] if they wish.

Thanking you in anticipation,

Greetings All,
Has anyone information on the combat that Bf110D-3 D5+EH Wk Nr. 4276 of 3/NJG3 made a crash landing (Port engine on fire) close to its base at Vechta during the night of 29/30 June 11942 (Bremen raid)
