The following photo is on e-bay at the moment, can anyone provide the crew and date of the 4000th sortie?

This was a picture that was taken as part of a sequence. Unfortunately, the picture I have seen, only 44 is visible. Looking at the uniforms, this is a summer picture taken in the Med (until 10.44 the unit was at Athens-Tatoi).

This scan looks as though it mentions a single digit date in a month with a u which fits nicely with the 1.4 - 1.10 dates for summer uniforms, meaning either June or July.... Beyond that, I've got nothing, I'm afraid.

If I had to guess - 9.6.44

I know this reply a bit late after the original posting but The 4000th flight crew for 2(F)./123 were (RKT) Oblt Franz Hessinger, Ofw Helmut Dorries, Ofw Herbert Huster and Fw August Fastenrodt flown on 23.09.43.

Jeff,

First, welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the answer - on checking the notes that I have accumulated for (F)./123 I found that I had this information from a Flypast article by Chris Goss. What I had not done was associate this post (and the photo) with that entry. So, thanks very much for this as I will add it to the unit history that I am building at http://www.wiki.luftwaffedata.co.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Aufkl%C3%A4rungsgruppe_123
