Soon after this photograph was taken, Hohagen received the Ritterkreuz on 5 October 1941 after 30 victories. Hohagen later flew with JG2 and JG26 on the Channel Front and was finally with JG7 and JV 44.

His aircraft is seen here at Staraya-Bykow on 26 July with II victory bars. Later, Schultz was awarded the Ritterkreuz and survived the war with 73 victories.

Otto Schulz of 4./JG27 who was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 22 February 1942. It is believed that in this photograph, one of a series taken at the same time, Schulz was merely posing in the cockpit as at this time he had his own machine coded White 2 and did not join the Gruppenstab until he had been promoted to Oberleutnant in May 1942.

Image 01: Messerschmitt Bf 109F.2 flown by Fw. Rudolf Nielinger of 4./JG51 An example of the temporary white finish applied over all aircraft uppersurfaces as a winter camouflage scheme. It was not until the attack on Russia that there was any requirement for a winter camouflage and, as the RLM had not anticipated such a requirement, the only suitable material available was a white, artificial resin emulsion paste known as Ikarin-A2515.21. This had originally been supplied to the German army as a means of applying a temporary winter finish and could be diluted and applied by brush or spray.

Photo's 01-04: Bf 109F flown by Fw. Rudolf Nielinger whose first operational posting was to 4./JG51 at Mardijck on 29 March 1941. At that time the Staftd was equipped with Bf-109Es and between 22 April and 1 June 1941 Nielinger flew several missions against England. He was then assigned a brand new Bf 109F-2 and transferred to the East, flying his first combat mission of the Russian campaign from Liedice on 22 June, during which he was engaged in combat with three Soviet fighters over Brest-Litovsk. Nie1inger gained his first victory on 25 June when, flying 'Yellow 6', he shot down an SB bomber. His second victory came on 3 July when, flying 'White 4', the aircraft shown here, he destroyed a DB-3. By the time 4./JG51 transferred to North Africa in early September 1942, Neilinger was credited with 16 confirmed kills.

Josef 'Joschko' Fözö

Josef 'Joschko' Fözö was born on 7 November 1912 at Wien in Austria. He joined the Austrian Luftstreitkräfte before transferring to the Luftwaffe following Germany's annexation of Austria in 1938. From summer 1938 until March 1939, Fözö flew with 3. Staffel of J 88, operating in support of the Nationalist cause during the Spanish Civil War. He claimed three victories in 147 missions during that conflict. He was awarded the Spanienkreuz in Gold mit Schwertern for his achievements during that conflict. On his return to Germany, Oberleutnant Fözö was appointed Staffelkapitän of 10./JG72 operating Ar 68 biplane fighters. The unit was based at Böblingen at the outbreak of World War 2.

Fözö was appointed Staffelkapitän of 2./JG71 on 16 July 1939. In October 1939, 2./JG71 was redesignated 4./JG51. Fözö recorded his first victory of World War 2 on 16 April 1940 when he shot down a tethered artillery-spotting balloon near Breisach during the French campaign. During the Battle of Britain, Fözö was particularly successful. Fözö was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of II./JG51 on 21 February 1941. By the time Fözö participated in the invasion of Russia, he had at least 15 victories to his credit. Hauptmann Fözö was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 2 July for 22 victories. He recorded his 24th victory on 11 July.

However, he was badly injured in a take-off accident at Stava Bychow the same day in Bf109F-2 (W.Nr. 12836) Black <<- and was hospitalised for a lengthy period. Fözö returned to combat duty as Gruppenkommandeur of I./JG51, based on the Eastern front, on 3 May 1942. On 31 May, he was again badly injured in a landing accident at Tubelja in Bf 109F-2 (W.Nr. 8086). On recovery from his injuries, Fözö was appointed Kommodore of JG108 on 4 June 1944. He led the unit until 10 January 1945. Fözö died on 4 March 1979 at Wien. 'Joschko' Fözö was credited with 27 victories. He recorded three victories during the Spanish Civil War, 15 over the Western front and nine over the Eastern front.

Channel pilot. His 1st victory, a Spitfire N of Hythe, 5 July, 1940. 20 victories in Russia. His first Soviet victories being three SB-2's on 22 June, 1941. Over 500 combat missions. Flew combat missions for five years. Wounded seriously several times, once on 8 September, 1941 during Operation Barbarossa; again on 1 June, 1943, in Werk# 16391. On 1 June, 1943, he was mistaken by Wilhelm Steinmann, as a Spitfire, and shot down. For his punishment, Steinmann was sent to Romania. He bore the marks of his valor, said Johannes Steinhoff. 'He had a piece of plastic in his skull, and a face whose two halves no longer quite matched'. This, a result of a crash in 171559 after combat with '4 mots'. So disgusted with the Luftwaffe High Command, he renounced his RK, but continued to oppose the Allied bombing raids up to the very end. Photo
