    guys, an interesting image of two RCAF personell sitting besides the tail surface of a Ju 88G-6 of NJG 4 ? at Flensburg at the end of the war. What is of interest is the slash victory markings, with white slash stripes on the symbols as well as them being delivered on an angle. Usually only Gruppen, Geschwader Kommanduers or high ranking and scoring pilots would be recognized with their victories being presented on the tail of night fighters. In 1945 it was being quite common for Staffelk├Ąpitan's to have theirs presented, but here we have a member of I believe Ofw. Matt of 5./NJG 4 and 5 victory ace, presented with his camo of his bird in the well know wellenm├╝ster.....
