    eBay: another three sets of negatives

    looks dodgy, but perhaps set #3 was not actually sold the first time around - the original auction states 'withdrawn from sale -no longer available'

    eBay: NJG3 night fighter photo album

    thank you John..not many Gfr. (or even Ofw.) pilots with the RK in the Nachtjagd, that was my point.

    eBay: NJG3 night fighter photo album

    no 'fraid not. Neither of those names appear in the Obermaier book. Think you were right the first time - look at this image of Gildner at http://www.ritterkreuztraeger-1939-45.de/Luftwaffe/G/Gildner-Paul.htm

    eBay: NJG3 night fighter photo album

    there is indeed a resemblance - Gildner had around 30 vics by the spring of 1942 (time frame identified by Stipdonk/Meyer for at least two of these images) and flew a Dornier Do215 of course (photo 07). Liebherr left 7./NJG3 during 1942 and as you say wasn't awarded the RK prior to 1944...

    .. as an Ofw. he was probably not a pilot....looks vaguely like Hans Liebherr -

    eBay: NJG3 night fighter photo album

    nice NJG3 album ..photo 6 is reproduced on P164 of Stipdonk/Meyer Teil 2 along with a photo of Bf110 'D5+IN'. anybody manage to identify the RK holder - unfortunately James I don't think its any of those gentlemen...

    eBay: three sets of Bf109 & Bf110 negatives

    ..didn't win them, didn't expect to .. but bidding was fun !

    eBay: set of seaplane negatives

    it is ..I'd linked back to this thread from that one but not vice versa. Think the pics are in Cornwell's ATB opus

    eBay: another three sets of negatives

    Hi Chris, ..see P72-75 of Prien's III./JG3 history..the a/c is apparently Bf109E-4 WNr. 1559 which Balthasar kept after moving from I./JG1 - III./JG27 (cf. Gruppenemblem) ..it would appear that Peter's negatives are from the same sequence presented on the pages in Prien's history, image 8 set 1 being reproduced on P74.. Lützow in some of the pictures (Kommodore JG3 ) gives us a time frame of around late September 1940 ..

    eBay: set of seaplane negatives

    ..died from his injuries sustained in his crash-landing IIRC

    eBay: another three sets of negatives

    ..first image set 1 is also Balthasar - Kommandeur III./JG3 - not easy to recognise with his Brille

    eBay: another three sets of negatives

    the same pilot appears in the 'seaplane' negative group and is identified here

    eBay: another three sets of negatives

    great work again ..thank you for posting. they seem to be PK 'left-overs' from fairly well known sequences, Oesau, Balthasar, the Rata & JG54 Bf109Friedrich - the injured RAF Hurricane pilot is familiar too..

    eBay: three sets of Bf109 & Bf110 negatives

    ...I will enjoy putting on my huge bid, knowing full well that it will be beaten..
  15. Neil P

    eBay: three sets of Bf109 & Bf110 negatives

    definitely looks like a treasure trove from a PK photographer ....note AH in pic 6 of Peter's last post..
  16. Neil P

    eBay: three sets of Bf109 & Bf110 negatives

    ..frankly I'm not surprised, probably been made an offer he couldn't refuse....thanks again for managing to snaffle them for our enjoyment !

    eBay: three sets of Bf109 & Bf110 negatives

    Hi Chris, re your #10, see my post #6 ..Lützow went to Spain having previously served with JG132, forerunners of the Richthofen..must admit the cuffband threw me since I (and wikipedia) usually associate him with JG3...Bertram was a rather rotund chap for a Bf109 pilot..
  18. Neil P

    eBay: three sets of Bf109 & Bf110 negatives

    thanks Goran..should have known that ..serves me right for looking at wikipedia, where there is no mention of his service with JG132...

    eBay: three sets of Bf109 & Bf110 negatives

    ..a find that's probably worth a blog post too no doubt.....very nice work indeed Peter..thanks again for bringing yet more gems to our attention... nice shot of bemedalled Günther Lützow (person 3) presumably above - could someone please remind me what the cuffband reads?
  20. not only does photo 2 'white 16' appear in lots of different books, it also pops up regularly on Ebay it would seem - last discussed in detail in 2007 on another forum after another Ebay appearance (google search for JG53 Reichenbach) the two very clear pics in the Kagero monograph showing the entire airframe are from Jim Crow who usually has a (the ?)negative and always annotates the back of his vet repro pictures with 'original' remarks, although on this occasion (Kagero) he hasn't specified the location.. " ..an original photo taken by my uncle .." ??
  21. the Me261 is another very good 'find' indeed !
