Remarks: Shot down with wounds 21 June, 1944 over Berlin. He was able to bail but suffered many fractures, remaining in the hospital until wars end. Another source suggests that his A-8 was actually a Bf 109G-8, same serial number and call letters 'VR + YE'. 4 bombers. His first known victory, a Lancaster at Lingen on 20 February, 1944. A 2nd, a B-17 NW of Magdeburg on 20 June, 1944. Nos. 3, 4 & 5, all B-24's east of Berlin on 21 June, 1944, shortly before being shot down by a single engine fighter.

Bisher war dieser Flugzeugführer wenig bekannt. Erst als wir Post von seinem Sohn erhielten, mit der Bitte doch seine Person ebenfalls in die Runde der ehemaligen Angehörigen mit aufzunehmen, haben wir uns genauer mit seiner Person beschäftigt. OLtn. Paul-Georg Schaffrath war Staffelführer bei der 5./ JG300. Glücklicherweise endete durch einen tragischen Unfall beim FSA der Krieg für ihn bereits am 21.6.1944. Bis zum Kriegsende kehrte er nicht mehr an die Front zurück. Auf Nachfrage bei einigen ehemaligen Flugzeugführern der 5., 6., 7. und 8./ JG300 konnte sich niemand mehr richtig an seine Person erinnern. Das ist das Los der kurzen Dienstzeit, so dass man dann in Vergessenheit gerät.

Bare metal G-6 of III./JG300 flown by Oblt. Kurt Gabler Germany, July 1944 in Mosquito interceptor role http://hsfeatures.com/features04/bf109g632ir 2.htm
An operational Bf.109 in natural metal seems, well, unnatural! Yet here is one.

'Red 8' was a Bf 109G-6 flown by Oblt. Kurt Gabler, III./JG300, in July 1944. From photographs this aircraft appears to have been sanded back from its original RLM74/75/76 finish, reportedly in an effort to increase its speed for intercepting RAF Mosquitos. Traces of paint are visible on the wing root and base of the elevators, and the swastika has clearly been sanded down, leaving only a faint trace. Note that the gun troughs and various access panels appear darker than the rest of the aircraft because they are composed of darker metals (e.g., the gun troughs were iron). This same effect is seen in photographs of a sanded down Bf109G belonging to the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), adding support to the claim that "Red 8" was natural metal rather than light grey.

'Red 8' is one of many unique Luftwaffe fighters featured in the new Eagle Editions' publication, 'Jagdeschwader 300, Volume 1' by Jean-Yves Lorant and Richard Goyat, with artwork by Tom Tullis and Richard Goyat. The book, along with EagleCals decals, will make its appearance at the IPMS Nationals in Atlanta. This model of "Red 8" will be on display at the Eagle Editions table, so check it out!
