December 15, 1944

According to his own account, Fw. Karl-Heinz Becker is transferred to Kurt Welter’s unit on December 15th, 1944. This is what Karl-Heinz Becker wrote:

“On December 15th, 1944, I was transferred to Kurt Welter’s unit after having had a telephone call with him. At this time, I was assigned to the Ergänzungsgruppe Tagjagd in Strausberg near Berlin with an already signed transfer to Jagdgeschwader 26 in Rheine. Instead, I joined Kurt Welter in Rechlin-Lärz.”[1]personal Account by Karl-Heinz Becker, November 1977

Discussions with Manfred Boehme suggest that there have been others that joined Kurt Welter’s unit around this time as well – but for those men, no personal accounts are available and (at this time) also no direct or indirect evidence from primary sources.
