In the Gen.Qu.6 Abt. loss returns featured in the latest Lw Verband journal (No.43)
an entry under X Fl.K. for 13 April 1940 states that an He 115 of the 1./KflGr.106 force-landed on the island of Vega and Oblt.Hattenbach was allegedly shot after being taken prisoner.

Has anyone ever come across anything related to the circumstances surrounding this alleged incident?

Shores has this for 13/04/40 - "During the afternoon four He 115s of I/KuFlGr.106 left Stavanger for Narvik. These found Warspite surrounded by a heavy screen of destroyers, as they reached their destination, but an attempt to attack was driven off by the AA barrage. They then found the destroyer Ivanhoe alone and attacked this vessel but were unable to score any hits. The formation then continued to Narvik, where they landed."

Unfortunately, no mention of one of their number being forced down or anything about the alleged incident.


Best Regards
