Bf-109K-4 flown by Major Adolf Borchers, Stab III./JG 52, Deutsch Brod/Czechoslovakia, May 1945. Borchers was appointed to as the last Gruppenkommandeur of III./JG 52 in February 1945, the Geschwader's most successful Gruppe. At the end of the war he was confined by the Soviets in Czechoslovakia. He had achieved a total of 132 victories, 127 of which were on the Eastern Front, in about 800 combat sorties. Adolf Borchers passed away on February 9th, 1996. Note that all three colours on Borcher's attractive Bf109 are late variants. The RLM 76 is a darker shade than usual, RLM 75 has a purple-hue, and RLM 83 is darker than normal. These variations were caused by the poor standard of paint manufacture late in the war. skin by Canon, August 2004

A second brother, SS-Hauptsturmführer Hermann Borchers received the Knight's Cross on 16 October 1944 as commander of the I. Battalion of the SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 19.

Biography

He was born in Wendhausen near Lüneburg. He joined the Condor Legion in the fall of 1938 and participated as a Unteroffizier in the Spanish Civil War. After the Spanish Civil War he was transferred to 2./Jagdgeschwader 77 (JG 77) which later became 11./Jagdgeschwader 51 (JG 51). In this unit he fought in the Invasion of Poland, Battle of France and Battle of Britain, claiming 5 kills in the west. During Operation Barbarossa he accumulated further victories and by the end of 1941 his score had increased to 23 aerial victories. After being promoted to an Officers rank he was made Staffelkapitän of 11./JG 51 on 8 October 1942. By the end of 1942 his score stood at 38 aerial victories.

In 1943 Borchers married the famed skier Christl Cranz.

For 78 aerial victories he was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross. On 11 June 1944 he was put in charge of I./JG 52. He claimed his 100 aerial victory on 24 July 1944. His 118th victory claimed on 2 September 1944 is also noted for claiming Jagdgeschwader 52 (JG 52) 10,000th kill[3]. Gruppenkommandeur Borchers was transferred to III./JG 52 on 1 February 1945. Together with his fellow comrades he surrendered to US force only to be turned over to Soviet forces.

Borchers was officially credited with shooting down 132 enemy aircraft in more than 800 combat missions, the majority were claimed on the Eastern front and five were claimed in the Battle of France and Battle of Britain together.[4]

After World War II he and his wife, Christl Cranz, found a Ski school which she led until 1987.
