Post by morrisc8GS » 17 Mar 2023 10:53

Hi, I have this photo in my collection of what i think is a Henschel Hs 123 ? that was shot down with a grave near it. Photo dated 25 june 1940.
The info on the back of the photo says an "Shot-down Engländer and grave on the road from Arras to Villers-Châtel 25th June 1940. English plane
and grave but is wrong unless there were two planes , i am trying to id the german pilot that
could be in the grave.
II. (Schl)/LG 2. One combat loss was reported on 5th June or the 15th June.
Thanks for any help.

The engine nacelle and the fact that it's a two-blade, confirm that it is a Henschel Hs 123.

II. (Schlacht)/LG2 was based in Cambrai during May and June 1940, operating with Hs 123 aircrafts.
