    I am truly saddened to report the passing of Night fighter ace Wilhelm Johnen of NJG 6. Wilhelm had been battling Altzheimer's disease for quite some time.

    Rest in Peace friend.......

    :(

    Gag, no I haven't heard a thing from anyone actually. Wrote a brief yesterday to a pilot from 9./NJG 5 but nothing. you guess is as good as ine. Try again, but would give the ace guys at least 1/2 months before writing again. Martin Drewes travels quite a bit from what I hear from a Brazilian friend.
    Just got back from a funeral today honouring a 31 year old friend who used to work with me. A goergous green eyed blonde died from a stinking brain anerism. Besides being totally in shock and depressed, I have really been out of sorts the last 4 days.......sorry guys.

    hope to hear positive news about martin soon eh.....and Remy ?

    Well I feel better that Remy and his wife are still with us. Things travel at a snails pace during November through January of the year. I sent out 6 letters in November, a month I hve always swore to myself I would never send out in.....and sure enough I heard back from all the Luftwaffe vets before the end of the year. Really had not expected to hear a thing almost till now if at all since we have all discussed the mail and what may happen to it during the holidays.

    Let me re-interrate again......Guys, please if you are wishing to write any vet Allied or German, you must do it now. They are passing from us and every time one passes away we lose another piece of history......our history ! sniff, sniff....

    Sorry Stevin, and Erich--sorry for the losses. Someone at that young age being called home so early--I feel for you my friend.

    My best wishes go out to her family.
    Take care my friend and will be back here tomorrow. [​IMG]
