Photo 01: The non-standard two-tone green scheme employed by JG54 may be clearly seen on these Bf 109Fs. The aircraft on the left carries a horizontal bar aft of the fuselage Balkenkreuz indicating that it belonged to 11. Gruppe, and has this Gruppe's Lion of Aspern badge ahead of the windscreen, while the aircraft on the right carries the badge and, just visible, the wavy bar of Ill. Gruppe. Note also that this aircraft has a patch of darker green on the engine cowling.

Photo 01. Philipp seen here with Oblt. Werner Pichon-Kalau von Hofer, left became Staffelkapitan of the 4./JG54 on 26 August while based at Campagne. Philipp claimed his first victory while with l./JG76 in Poland and seven more during the Western campaign. Here, all eight victories maybe seen on his aircraft's rudder. By 22 October 1940, Philipp's total had risen to 20 victories, for which he was awarded the Ritterkreuz, and by the end of the year his score had risen to 23.

Photo 01-02: Hans Philipp first saw action during the Polish campaign, in which he scored his first victory. In August 1940, he was appointed Staffelkapitan of 4./JG54 and soon gained a reputation for being an exceptional fighter pilot with a passion for fighter versus fighter combat. He was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 22 October 1940 with 20 victories and later flew in Yugoslavia, but his victory tally really began to increase in Russia and by 24 August 1941 he had received the Oak Leaves for 62 victories. In February 1942, aged only 25, Philipp became Kommandeur of I./JG54 and was responsible for many young pilots who would themselves later become successful fighter pilots. On 12 March 1942, Philipp was awarded the Swords for his 86 victories and on 31 March became the fourth fighter pilot to reach 100 victories.

Photo 01: Apparently taken during a combat patrol by II./JG54, this photograph is believed to show the wingman from a Rotte of 4. Staffel. Despite the dark appearance of the fuselage number and Gruppe bar, these markings are thought to have been white, in accordance with those used by the Staffel, and only appear darker due to the new snow-camouflage contrasting with the grime and weathering collected earlier.

Photo 01: Utfz. Fritz Zander of 5./.JG54 on the wing of his 'Black 1'.The name 'Lia' under the cockpit refers to his wife, Elise. Note that, as appropriate for this period, the colour for the second Staffel within a Gruppe is black and, indeed, the Staffelkapitan, Oblt. Hubert Mutherich, is known to have flown 'Black 10'. Later in the war, Zander transferred to Reichsverteidigung duties where he flew with JG1. The lines painted on the canopy side windows were used as an aid to bomb-aiming. On the Northern Front, an inadequate number of standard bomber aircraft prevented large-scale attacks against ground targets and it therefore became especially important to commit fighter aircraft as tighter-bombers. During the winter months, JG54 carried out a number of trials to determine the suitability of the Bf-109 in this role. Best results were achieved by attacking at an angle of 45 degrees from 2,000 to 3000 metres, as the aircraft attained a high speed which exploited the element of surprise and the high velocity of the bombs ensured greater accuracy. Another advantage was that the aircraft remained within range of ground fire for only a short time. By comparison, low-level attacks resulted in losses disproportionate to success. During fighter-bomber operations in the Winter of 1941, six of the seven aircraft which JG54 lost were due to ground fire encountered during low-level attacks. In addition, 36 aircraft were hit in their radiators, only a few of which could be flown back to their operational airfield and safely landed.

On 6 August 1941, Generaloberst Keller, CO of Luftflotte 1, presented him with the Ritterkreuz for 30 victories but, little over a month later, on 9 September, Mutherich was killed while making a forced landing.

Hans Beisswenger, Staffelkapitan of 6./JG54, July 1941 The II./JG54 first began to experiment with this form of camouflage during the latter stages of the Battle of Britain and it remained in use throughout the early stages of the Russian campaign. Here, the fuselage top decking and spine are finished in two greys, either mixed or early examples of 74 and 75, with the Pale Blue 76 fuselage sides covered in patches of 02, around which are sprayed meandering lines of Green 70. On this machine, one half of the Green 70 spinner has been painted white and the tip is yellow. Eighteen victory bars appear on the rudder.

Knights Cross

Hans Philipp

Hans Philipp was born on March 17, 1917 in Meissen in Saxony. As a member of I./JG76 (later to become II./JG54), Philipp saw action over Poland and scored his first victory. Later during the Battle of Britain, Hans Philipp was made the Staffelkapitan of 4./JG54.

Philipp soon gained a reputation for being a superb dogfighter, often preferring to battle it out with enemy fighters rather than bombers. Philipp's successes in combat were recognized on November 4, 1940 when he was awarded the Knights Cross for his twenty victories to date. In typical celebratory fashion, he claimed a Hurricane ten days later.

On March 26, 1941, Yugoslavia pronounced its defiance of Hitler and joined the Allied cause. Fearing offensive operations from Yugoslavian territory, Hitler issued Directive No. 25 - the subjugation of Yugoslavia and Greece. On the second day of attacks, April 7, 1941, the Grunherz Geschwader engaged the Jugoslovensko Kraljevsko Ratno Vazduhoplovstvo (JKRV) in a massive air battle. In daring attacks, the JKRV manned Me 109s attacked twenty-six Ju 87 Stuka dive-bombers, escorted by double that amount of fighters. During this dogfight, Hans Philipp managed to down two of the JKRV 109s.

Operation Barbarossa saw Philipp's score begin to climb. On August 24, 1941, Philipp became the 33rd member of the German Armed Forces to be awarded the Oak Leaves to the Knights Cross. On a sad note, Franz Eckerle, Kommandeur of I./JG54, was posted missing on February 14, 1942. The high scoring Hans Philipp was chosen as his successor. As Kommandeur of I./JG54, he oversaw the early careers of many young fighter pilots, among them Walter Nowotny.

March 1942 saw Philipp reach some incredible milestones. On March 12, 1942, he became the first member of JG54 to be awarded the Swords to the Knight Cross (8th overall). Even more remarkable, on March 31, 1942 Philipp became the fourth Luftwaffe fighter pilot to achieve 100 victories.

April 1, 1943 saw Philipp transferred to Defense of the Reich duties as Kommodore of JG1. There he battled the growing menace of the 8th Air Force and continued to score victories as his duties allowed.

The following is an excerpt (in italics) from Eric Mombeek's book 'Defending the Reich: The History of Jagdgeschwader 1 - Oesau' Reichmarshall Goring issued the following edict after an 8th AF raid on October 4, 1943:

  1. There are no meterological conditions which would prevent fighters from taking off and engaging in combat.

  2. Every fighter pilot taking off in a machine not showing any sign of combat, or without having recorded a victory will be prosecured by a court-martial.

  3. In the case of where a pilot uses up his ammunition, or if his weapons are unusable, he should ram the enemy bomber.

Kommodore Philipp's response: 'As far as I'm concerned, I categorically refuse to allow myself to be held to such advice; I know what I have to do!'

On October 8, 1943, the 8th AF dispatched 156 bombers to targets in Bremen and Vegesack. The force was escorted by 250+ Thunderbolts from six different fighter groups.

The Stab Flight of the Geschwader heard Philipp announce a victory over a Thunderbolt. The last tranmission from him was: 'Reinhardt, attack!' Feldwebel Reinhardt was Philipp's wingman on this day. He last saw the Kommodore's aircraft disappear in a cloud. Reinhardt was wounded after colliding with an enemy aircraft, but made a successful forced landing. Later that evening, the Geschwader learned that their Kommodore had been shot down and killed.

In the all too brief career of this dogfight artist, Philipp scored 206 victories over the course of 500+ missions

In 1938, he underwent fighter pilot training. Beisswenger became an instructor and served in this role until winter 1940. In winter 1940, Beisswenger was transferred to JG54. Leutnant Beisswenger was assigned to 6./JG54. He recorded his first victory on 7 April 1941, when he shot down a Yugoslavian Hurricane fighter during the invasion of the Balkans. Later, over the Eastern front, serving with 3./JG54, Beisswenger became a leading scorer in I. Gruppe. He recorded his 20th victory on 24 August and by the end of 1941 had 32 victories to his tally. On 6 April 1942, Beisswenger recorded his 40th victory and his 50th on 8 May. Leutnant Beisswenger was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 9 May for 50 victories.
