LW Knight's Cross Recipient Identification

Post by Feldpost » 06 Sep 2009 13:49

Can anyone identify this Luftwaffe Knight's Cross recipient for me? I have looked through Obermaier's books on Jagdflieger, Stuka- and Schlachtflieger, but didn't see anyone who looked like this man. Perhaps he was a bomber pilot?

Hello Barry,

My only version, Rudolf Henne from KG 51 (not 100% sure...)

Best wishes

Could this be Major Wilhelm ‘Willi’ Herget ? Just a stab but it made me think of him when I first saw it.

It's not Herget definitely. I agree with Ruslan - it's Henne.
