Hi all My interest with Max Broy started last month when by chance I managed to purchase in auction his personalised wooden Luftwaffe case. luckily the case had his name and flight Squadron on and having done a quick search I found out a few bits of information regarding him. But more importantly I found a military dealers site which were selling a set of 6 of his flight / award certs.!
I obviously would like to find a bit more about Max Broy? His certificates are dated to may 1943 and it is there that the case goes cold... I have checked the German war graves site but I have found nothing....
Wording on the case is
Unteroffizier Max Broy, Kampfgeschwader Hindenburg
Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated
Cheers
Aidy

Do you know anybody in Kampfgeschwader 1 Hindenburg had joined and served in the Bundesluftwaffe or other foreign air forces after WWII?
