Hello Matthew,
I'm sorry I was in France for a couple of days.
1/ Hummm this picture is better than the previous one.
2/ I have, more or less the same caption than yours.
BUT ...PROBLEM.
3/ Eggers was 2./JG 21 Staka, not von Holtey.
AND
4/ Von Holtey is in JG 26 loss list, not JG 21 or JG 54.

COD skins by Matthew Laird Acred. One book say's the no 14 could be red but I believe it Black but shows paint overspray and is a little missleading but if you look at the prop which is Black, White and Red the colours show the no's as being Black not Red.
