    Ace Egon Mayer:the signature is in a bit bad place but looking at it from different perspectives you can see it nicely.

    Egon Mayer 1.jpg

    Egon Mayer 2.jpg

    Egon Mayer 3.jpg

    On 2 March 1944, Mayer led a formation from JG 2 against an USAAF daylight raid. USAAF P-47 fighters escorted the bombers. The fighter escort overpowered Mayer’s attacking group and he was shot down and killed near Montmédy in Fw 190 A-6 (W.Nr. 470 468). He was posthumously awarded the Schwertern (Nr 51).

    Aces of the Luftwaffe - Egon Mayer

    Egon Mayer shot down 102 enemy aircraft. All his victories were recorded over the Western Front and included 26 four-engine bombers, 51 Spitfire and 12 P-47 fighters.

    Richard Henze

    Richard Henze.jpg

    On the 21.08.1942 Major Henze and his Bataillon launched an early morning crossing over the Don river. Despite the extreme difficulty of their task, Henze and his men managed to achieve victory and secure a bridgehead in this area. Henze would be decorated with the Knight’s Cross for his success here.

    Awarded for distinguishing himself with his Regiment during the fighting in the Vosges mountains through late 1944 and the first days of 1945.

    Heinz Greiner.JPG

    Heinz Greiner

    Awarded for his outstanding command of a Kampfgruppe composed of Heer and Fallschirmjäger troops in the area Velletri—Valmontone (on the Anzio front). His unit repelled a total of 38 Allied attacks on both sides of Velletri through either a successful initial defense or via immediate counterthrusts against hostile penetrations.

    During Operation Barbarossa Greiner reached divisional level command. The division was destroyed in the Soviet Operation Bagration in the summer of 1944, along with much of Army Group Centre. Greiner was transferred to Italy where he took command of the 362nd Infantry Division. Losses were heavy in the division in Italy.

    Wilhelm Bredemeyer.jpg

    During the mountain combat in the Caucasus in 1942 the vanguard of a Kampfgruppe received the order to take control of an important pass. Feldwebel Bredemeier’s Zug was sent ahead as the lead unit. During the morning hours Feldwebel Bredemeier and a few Jäger reached the point that was thought to be the pass position following a very difficult climb. However he immediately ascertained that the actual pass was still more than a kilometre away from the reached position. It was known that a Russian force of 400-500 men was approaching the pass from the south.

    The occupation of this pass and ridge was of decisive importance for the operations of the Kampfgruppe. If the Soviets had managed to bring both terrain features into their possession then the entire forward advance of the Gruppe would have been cast into doubt, and at the same time a danger would have existed that our friendly forces further to the east might have been cut off.

    The aforementioned action took place on the 28.08.1942 at the Bgalar Pass and the nearby mountain ridge. From here it was only a 22 km straight line distance to the Black Sea.
