    very sad to hear of these last two Paul, Werner was in fact at one time associated with setting up the Flak airfield defenses for the fields of Me 262 JG 7

    Johannes will have some play in my upcoming German night fighter book and I spoke to him through a very close a personal friend of his familie several years ago, even then Johannes was not in contact with many as he was becoming ill. Johannes of course is famous as BF in Herr Rudi Schonerts crew while in NJG 100, 5 and in NJGr 10 Stab flying in Ju 88G-6's and He 219's, etc.

    RIP
