Gentlemen,

I'm trying to eastablish the identity of the pilot in the image shown below.

Written on the back of the photo is the following:
"Fw.Franek(sp?), 4(H)/12 North Africa 9.December 1942"
Also an additional entry on the back identifies the script word on the fuselage side
as "Rums".

As far as the emblem beneath the cockpit is concerned I know I've seen something similar but can't recall where.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Dave

Hi Dave,

Maybe Friedrich Stannek who flew with 4(H)/12 during 42-43. I've seen his name spelt with many variations.

He's the only pilot I know who flew with 4(H)/12 at this time whose name possibly fits.

Regards

Hi Dave,

Just checked on http://www.das-ritterkreuz.de and there is a photo of Stannek. Unfortunately I don't think it's your man.

All the best

Andy Fletcher

Thanks Andy.
I had a look at the photo of Stannek and would agree that they don't appear to be the same bloke.

Regards

Dave
