Luftwaffe Fighter Pilots

Missing In Action
JG 1

To summarise, in a few words, the history of his unit, Eberhard Burath, a former Adjutant, wrote: "Throughout the entire war, our JG 1 had the thankless task of defending the north-west flank of the Reich, which, until the Americans entered the air war, merited little attention. The Geschwader came to the fore with the start of the "Defence of the Reich", which was to be a harsh baptism of fire."

Here follows the list of MIA pilots of JG 1. Any question concerning this list is welcomed. If you have the answer to just one of these entries, I would be glad to include your remark and name.
