Photo 01: Adolf "Addi" Glunz joined the Luftwaffe on 1 September 1939. On completion of his flying training, he was posted toJG52 and on 9 November 1940 was assigned to 4./JG52. He recorded his first victory, an RAF Spitfire, on 7 May, claimed a second 12 days later, and subsequently accompanied the Geschwader when it transferred to Russia. He recorded three victories during his time on the Eastern Front before joining U.!JG26 in the West in July 1941 and on 27 August claimed his sixth victory. By the end of 1942, he had accumulated 23 victories and on 28 March 1943, he succeeded in shooting down two Mosquito bombers in the space of one minute as victories 28 and 29, adding his 30th on 3 April. Two days later, he claimed his first American four-engined bomber to bring his score to 32. On 29 August 1943, he became the only NCO in the history ofJG26 to receive the Ritterkreuz. On 31 December, Glunz claimed his 50th victory and on 15 January 1944, still only an Oberfeldwebel, he was appointed Staffelfuhrer of 5.!JG26.Just seven days later on 22 February 1944, he achieved six victories in one day, including five four-engined bombers, as victories 54 to 59. On 24 February, Glunz transferred to 6./JG26, later becomingStaffelfuher. On 31 March, he was formally promoted to Leutnant and on 24 June he received the Eichenlaub following his 65th victory. In December he was promoted to Oberleutnant and recorded his 71st and final victory, an RAF Spitfire, on 1 January 1945. Glunt relinquished command of 6./JG26 in lIiarch, and on the 18th was sent to Ul./EJG2 to convert to the Me 262, after which he was assigned toJG7 and remained with this unit until the cessation of hostilities in May 1945.Although continually in action, he was never shot down, wounded or lost an aircraft in aerial combat. "Addi" Glunz flew a total of 574 missions, 238 of which resulted in contact with the enemy, and in addition to his 71 confirmed victories which included 19 four-engined bombers, it is possible he may have destroyed a further ten aircraft which were not confirmed.

Photo 01: 'Wutz' Galland, one of Adolf Galland's younger brothers, joined a Luftwaffe flak regiment in 1935 before later volunteering for training as a fighter pilot. On completion of his training with the Erganzungsgruppe/JG26, he joined II./JG26 on 27 June 1941.At that time, JG26 was under the command of his brother Adolf and his younger brother Paul was also serving with the Geschwader. Assigned to 6./JG26, Oblt. "Wutz" Galland recorded his first victory on the evening of 23 July 1941, shooting down a Spitfire north of Hesdin, and by the end of the year had three confirmed victories, all Spitfires. On 5 May 1942, he was appointedStaffelkapitanof 5./JG26 and by the end of the year his score stood at 21 confirmed victories. On 3 January 1943, now promoted to Hauptmann, "Wutz" Galland took command of II./JG26 and on 28 January he received the Deutsches Kreuz in Gold for 24 victories, followed on 18 May 1943 by the Ritterkreuz, awarded for the destruction of 35 enemy aircraft. On 17 August 1943, IL/JG26 took off to intercept B-17s returning from an attack on Schweinfurt. Finding a large force of these bombers near Liege, Galland - now a Major - led his fighters in to the' attack but they were bounced by P-47s which, in their first pass, shot down Galland's Fw 190A-5 plus two others. Galland's aircraft was seen to crash near Liege, west of Maastricht. In 186 missions in the West, Wilhelm Ferdinand "Wutz" Galland had achieved 54 victories including seven heavy bombers and no fewer than 37 Spitfires.

Dutch Village Pays Tribute

War Dead Remembered

Soesterberg AB, The Netherlands --Peace and serenity reigned over the community of Opijnen, The Netherlands, on a bright sunny July 30th, 1943. The ravages of World War II had not yet reached this small farming village. Local farmers were in the fields harvesting their crops and preparing to take a short lunch break when a totally unexpected noise broke the stillness.

Overhead, a limping American B-17 bomber was being attacked by fighter aircraft of the German Luftwaffe. The lumbering giant didn't stand a chance against the swifter, more maneuverable fighters. The farmers stopped their work and stared in awe as the crew members bailed out of their burning craft, hopefully to safety. Their hope was short lived, however, because as the crew descended, the German aircraft banked sharply and strafed the crew as they dangled helpless in their parachutes. Hendrick de Kock, one of the Opijnen farmers in the fields that day, recalled, "Eight of the crew members got out of the airplane, but when they were hanging on those big umbrellas the German fighter started shooting at those poor boys. Oh, man, I got so mad I could have killed that fellow in the fighter."

From a crew of ten, two died in the aircraft, six died as a result of the strafing, and the other two were captured by German ground forces. One of the men fell through the roof of a farm house adjacent to the field and lived long enough for de Kock to get him a drink of water --an extraordinarily brave act as the German ground forces were shooting at the local Dutchmen as well as at the Americans. De Kock recalled, "He fell through the thatched roof and struck his head on one of the main beams of the house. I got him a drink of water, he gave me a few cigarettes to thank me, and then he died."

Two members of the crew survived but they were captured almost immediately by the Nazis.

The few facts that are known about the bomber indicate that it was from the 91st Bomb Group (now the 91st Bomb Wing, SAC), Eighth Army Air Force, flying from an air base in England on a mission to Kassel, Germany. The townspeople of the village carried the bodies of the dead airmen to their local cemetery and kept the bodies in a small building until the Germans granted them burial permission. After permission came from Berlin the graves were marked with simple wooden crosses inscribed only with the men's names.

At the end of the war, the remains of American servicemen buried on foreign soil were removed to central military cemeteries. However, the citizens of Opijnen requested that the graves of the eight airmen be left to their care in their own village cemetery.

The thought behind this small plot of land where these airmen are buried is best described by the citizens of Opijnen: "Where would we be and how would we live if it had not been for our Allies who fought and died for our freedom? In these eight men resting here in Opijnen under these marble headstones, we honor all men, that on this day we can be here having memorial services and speak our mind in freedom."

The eight graves are now marked with white marble headstones and are provided tender care by both the adults and children of the village.

In this article there is a badly smudged photograph of Mr. De Kock with a caption that reads: "On that day in 1943, Hendrick de Kock, an Opijnen farmer, was working in his father's hay fields when the B-17 was shot down. At risk of his own life, he attempted to help the dying American fliers."

Focke Wulf Fw 190A1 6./JG26 (Br13+-) pilot Gerhard Vogt W.Nr 013 Moorsele, France May 1942 00
Profile 00: Focke Wulf Fw 190A-1 W.Nr 013, 'Brown 13', flown by Uffz. Gerhard Vogt of 6./JG26, Moorsele Autumn 1941. This aircraft was camouflaged in RLM 02 and 71 on the uppersurfaces with these colors covering more of the frontal nose area than normally seen. The undersurfaces were painted RLM 76 and the machine carried standard yellow identification markings. Note the fuselage sides have heavy exhaust staining which resulted in some units painting the exhaust area black. Although the aircraft is depicted before Uffz. Vogt claimed his first victory, the rudder was probably later painted with two black bars to indicate the pilot's victories up to the time the machine was damaged.

Photo 01: This Fw 190A-I of 6./JG26,W.Nr 013, was coded 'Brown 13' and was flown by Uffz. Gerhard Vogt, who joined the 6.Staffelas an Obergefreiter in September 1941 and claimed his first victory, a Spitfire, on 6 November. On 24 March 1942, when Vogt had two victories, this aircraft was badly damaged in combat with a Spitfire, and although Uffz. Vogt was slightly wounded, he managed to return to Abbeville where he made a forced landing. Later commissioned, Gerhard Vogt reached the rank of Oberleutnant and led severalStaffeln of JG26, including the 4.Staffel, with which unit he was killed on 14 January 1945. By the time of his death, Vogt had been wounded in action on eight occasions and had 48 victories.

Photo 02: Although similar to W.Nr 013 shown above, this aircraft had slight variations in the camouflage and the positioning of the fuselage number, too, is also different. Since WNr. 013 is known to have been damaged in March 1942, this machine is not, therefore, believed to be the same aircraft, although it was possibly flown by the same pilot and the four or five black victory bars on the rudder represent Ufz. Vogt's victory tally in Mayor June 1942.

Luftwaffe Badge

Wilhelm-Ferdinand "Wutz" Galland

Wilhelm-Ferdinand "Wutz" Galland was born on 23 October 1914 at Bochum. He enlisted in the Luftwaffe in 1935 serving with a flak regiment. Galland participated in the invasion of the Low Countries and France with a flak regiment before volunteering for flight training at the end of 1940. He competed operational training with Erganzungsgruppe/JG26 and reported to II./JG26 on 27 June 1941. JG26 was under command of his brother Adolf Galland (104 victories, RK-Br). His younger brother Paul Galland (17 victories, killed in action 31 October 1942) was also serving with the unit. Assigned to 6./JG26, "Wutz" scored his first victory on 23 July 1941, shooting down a RAF Spitfire fighter near Hesdin. By the end of 1941 his victory total had climbed to three. On 5 May 1942, Galland was appointed Staffelkapitan of 5./JG26. He had eight victories to his credit. On 2 June, he claimed two Spitfires shot down over the Somme Estuary to record his ninth and 10th victories. Galland recorded his 20th victory on 4 December when he shot down another Spitfire near Boulogne. His score had risen to 21 by the end of 1942.

Hauptmann Galland was appointed Gruppen Kommandeur of II./JG26 on 3 January 1943. On 13 January he claimed a Spitfire shot down, but, it was, in fact, a 6th Staffel Bf-109G-4 piloted by Unteroffizier Johann Irlinger. The mistaken identification of the Messerschmitt for a Spitfire cost Irlinger his life. The incident was cleaned up for the official records... On 28 January, Galland received the Deutsches Kreuz in Gold for 24 victories. He recorded his 30th victory on 15 February, when he shot down a Spitfire near Ramsgate. Galland was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 18 May 1943 for 35 victories.

On 21 April, Galland scrambled at the head of II./JG26 to intercept an RAF formation targeting the Abbeville railroad yards. He led the attack on the bombers claiming two Ventura twin-engine bombers shot down to record his 39th and 40th victories. On 14 July, Galland entered combat with USAAF P-47 fighters escorting B-17 fourengine bombers raiding Villacoublay. He calimed two of the fighters shot down to record his 49th and 50th victories. On 17 August 1943, at 16:52, three Staffeln from II./JG26 took off from Lille-Nord, under the command of Major Galland, to intercept a formation of USAAF four-engine bombers on their return course from a bombing raid on Schweinfurt. Over Lutych, the unit encountered a formation of 150 to 200 bombers, escorted by nearly 200 escort fighters. II./JG26 bounced the bombers but were, in turn, attacked by a unit of P-47 fighters from the 56th Fighter Group, USAAF. Their fire crippled the Fw 190A-5 (W.Nr. 530125) <<+- flown by "Wutz" Galland which crashed at high speed near Liegne, 5 km west of Maastricht. The impact left a large crater in the ground from which it was impossible to remove all the wreckage. Some sources suggest that "Wutz" Galland was shot down by the American ace Walker "Bud" Mahurin (24.25 confirmed, 4 probable and 2 damaged victories) of the 56th Fighter Group, USAAF.

"Wutz" Galland was credited with 54 aerial victories in 186 missions. All his victories were recorded over the Western Front and included seven four-engine bombers and 37 Spitfires.

Adolf 'Addi' Glunz

Adolf "Addi" Glunz was born on 11 June 1916 at Bresegard in the Lugwiglust region of Mecklenburg. He joined the Luftwaffe on 1 September 1939. On completion of his flying training, he was posted to JG52 on 9 November 1940. Gefreiter Glunz was assigned to 4./JG52. He recorded his first victory, a RAF Spitfire fighter, on 7 May and claimed a second on 19 May. Glunz accompanied the unit when it transferred to Russia. He recorded three victories during his time on the Eastern front. He also claimed two tanks destroyed! Glunz returned to the Channel Front to serve with II./JG26 and became one of the most successful fighter pilots over the Western Front. He was assigned to 4./JG26, arriving there on 8 July 1941. He claimed his sixth victory, another RAF Spitfire, on 27 August. By the end of 1942 he had accumulated 23 victories. On 28 March, Glunz was scrambled from his base at Vitry to intercept six RAF Mosquito twin-engined bombers bombers headed toward Dunkirk at low level. He succeeded in shooting down two of the bombers within one minute to record his 28th and 29th victories. He recorded his 30th victory on 3 April. He shot down his first USAAF four-engined bomber on 5 April for his 32nd victory. On 29 August 1943, he became the only non-commissioned officer in JG26 ever to receive the Ritterkreuz. Glunz claimed his 50th victory on 31 December. Oberfeldwebel Glunz was appointed Staffelkapitan of 5./JG26 on 15 January 1944. On 22 February 1944, he achieved six victories in one day, including five four-engined bombers (54-59). He was commissioned with the rank of Leutnant in the first week of April 1944.

On 3 March 1944, Glunz was appointed Staffelkapitan of 6./JG26, a position he held until 18 March 1945. Operating over the Invasion front, Glunz claimed three USAAF P-47 fighters shot down on 10 June (62-64). He was awarded the Eichenlaub (Nr 508) on 24 June 1944 after 65 victories. On 24 December, Glunz shot a further two USAAF P-47 fighters (69-70). He recorded his 71st, and last, victory, a RAF Spitfire fighter, on 1 January 1945. On 18 March 1945, Glunz was transferred to III./EJG2 for conversion training on to the Me 262 jet fighter. He was then assigned to JG7 where he served out the remainder of the war. Although continuously in action until 1945, "Addi" Glunz was never shot down or wounded in aerial combat. He was, however, wounded once on the ground when he was showered with glass from a window during an RAF bombing raid on Abbeville in April 1942. "Addi" Glunz flew a total of 574 missions, including 238 with enemy contact, in achieving 71 victories. His total includes 19 four-engined bombers. He claimed three victories over the Eastern Front. In addition to his confirmed victories he had ten unconfirmed victories, possibly as many as 15 according to some sources.

Waldemar H. 'Waldi' Radener

Waldemar-H. 'Waldi' Radener was born on 24 January 1921 at Lüchtrigen in the Weser region of Westfalen. Leutnant Radener joined JG 26 in February 1943 following completion of his flying training. He was assigned to 4./JG 26. Radener shot down a RAF Spitfire fighter on 3 May to record his first victory. On 30 July he downed two USAAF P-47 fighters near Arnhem for his 4th and 5th victories. Radener was appointed Staffelkapitän of 6./JG 26 on 18 August, replacing Hauptmann Johannes “Hans” Naumann (34 victories, RK) who was taking command of II./JG 26. On 11 September, Radener was relieved of his command when Naumann was given command of 6./JG 26 to allow Major Johannes Seifert to take over II./JG 26. Radener assumed his previous position of second in command to Naumann.

Radener shot down a P-47 on 11 January 1944 to record his 10th victory. He was awarded the Deutsches Kreuz in Gold for 16 victories on 16 April. On 11 May, Radener brought down a USAAF B-24 four-engined bomber but then accidently rammed a second in his Fw 190 A-8 (WNr 680120) “Brown 2”. He baled out suffering only minor injuries. Radener was shot down on by USAAF P-51 fighters on 15 June in Fw 190 A-8 (WNr 730934) “Brown 2”. He baled out, but his parachute became caught up on his aircraft. He managed to free it but suffered injuries on landing serious enough to keep him out of combat until the end of the month. On 9 September 1944, Oberleutnant Radener was re-appointed Staffelkapitän of 7./JG 26. By the end of December he had 23 victories to his credit. Radener was appointed Gruppenkommandeur of II./JG 26 on 30 January 1945, replacing Major Anton Hackl (192 victories, RK-S) who had been appointed appointed Kommodore of JG 300. On 22 February 1945, Anton Hackl requested Radener transfer to JG 300 to command II./JG 300. Radener was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 12 March 1945. Radener survived the war. He joined the Bundesluftwaffe but was killed in a flying accident on 8 January 1957 near Schöngau.

“Waldi” Radener was credited with 37 victories. He also recorded a further 14 unconfirmed victories. All his victories were recorded over the Western front, including 12 four-engined bombers with an additional six unconfirmed.

Gerhard Vogt

Gerhard Vogt was born on 29 November 1911 at Raudten near Luben in Niederschlesien. Vogt joined JG26 based on the Channel front on 16 September 1941 following completion of his flying training. Obergefreiter Vogt was assigned to 6./JG26. He recorded his first victory when he shot down a RAF Spitfire fighter over Calais on 6 November 1941. On 24 March 1942, Unteroffizier Vogt was wounded in combat with Spitfires. He force-landed at Abbeville in his Fw 190A-1 (W.Nr. 013) "Brown 13". By the end of 1942, Vogt had accumulated 11 victories. On 2 February 1943, Vogt was shot down, again by Spitfires, over St Omer. His Bf-109G-4 (W.Nr. 161 29) "Brown 10" dived vertically but he managed to bale out, albeit with severe wounds to his shoulder and foot. He was to be hospitalised for four months at Arras.

Feldwebel Vogt was back in action on 22 June 1943, when he shot down a USAAF B-17 four-engined bomber straggler into the Channel off Dunkirk for his 12th victory. Vogt's Fw190A-5 (W.Nr. 410006) "Brown 13" was hit by return fire from the B-17 he was attacking on 30 July. He attempted to ram his target then baled out with serious injuries. He crash-landed his damaged Fw 190A-4 (W.Nr. 2456) "Brown 11" at Romilly-sur-Seine after being hit by return fire from the B-17s he was attacking on 3 September. He was slightly injured in the incident. On 4 September, Vogt shot down a Spitfire near Le Treport for his 14th victory. It transpired that his victim was Australian ace Flt Lt FAO "Tony" Gaze (12.5 confirmed, 4 probable and 5 damaged victories) of 66Sqn, RAF, who evaded and later returned to combat duty.

By November, Vogt was serving with 7./JG26. Vogt was ordered to scramble with 7./JG26 after three Spitfires flying in line abreast over the fighter airfields at Valenciennes, Douai, Vitry and Epinoy on 28 January 1944. The Spitfires were engaged and two were badly damaged but managed to make it back to England. The third, the leader, was chased by Vogt and shot down as he climbed for the protection of the cloud cover. The enemy pilot baled out but became caught up on his aircraft's tail. He was to die in hospital several hours later. It transpired that Vogt had shot down another prominent Allied fighter pilot. P/O Claude Weaver (12.5 confirmed and 3 probable victories) of 403Sqn, RAF was an American flying with the RAF. Oberfeldwebel Vogt was awarded the Deutsches Kreuz in Gold on 5 May for 26 victories. On 15 June 1944, Leutnant Vogt assumed command of 7./JG26 when Oberleutnant Waldemar Radener (37 victories, RK) was seriously wounded in aerial combat. On 5 July, Vogt was injured when his Fw 190 A-8 (W.Nr. 170661) "Brown 13" hit power lines as he was attempting a crash-landing between Bure and Mele sur Sarthe following combat with Spitfires. Vogt was appointed Staffelkapitan of 5./JG26 on 14 August 1944, replacing Hauptmann Walter Matoni (34 victories, RK) who was taking up the position of Gruppenkommandeur of I./JG11. He achieved his 40th victory on 21 September, over Nijmegen when JG26 intercepted paratroop-carrying C-47s heading for Arnhem.

Vogt was shot down again on 28 October, following aerial combat with RAF Typhoon fighters near Venlo. He received minor injuries when he crash-landed his Fw 190A-8 (W.Nr. 175 130) "White 13". Vogt was awarded the Ritterkreuz on 25 November for 46 victories. Oberleutnant Vogt led 5./JG26 during Operation Bodenplatte, the attack on the Allied airfields in The Netherlands and Belgium on 1 January 1945. On 14 January 1945, JG26 was ordered to engage Allied fighter-bombers harassing German ground troops in the Ardennes region. In transit to their assigned patrol zone 5./JG26 was engaged by USAAF fighters. Vogt was shot down and killed in the ensuing combat crashing with his Fw 190 D-9 (W.Nr. 210176) "White 13" near Koln. Gerhard Vogt was credited with 48 victories in 174 missions. All his victories were recorded over the Western front and included eight four-engined bombers.
