    Hello,

    My name is Marcel Hogenhuis, living in Venlo where in WW-2 a large German nightfighter airfield was built. Its history dominates my historical research since 1984 and my archive has grown to a room of 18 m2 and 35 m of bookshelves.

    At the moment I am busy with several databases of aircraft which have been in Venlo: Bf 110, Me163, He219 etc. / an indepth reconstruction of RAF Bomber Command versus Luftwaffe nightfighters for the evening of 20th December 1942 / writing a history of the first German nightfighter Gruppe I./NJG 1.

    Hoping to help more people as questions of mine posted in this forum, all the best,

    drs. Marcel Hogenhuis / Venlo / the Netherlands

    Welcome Marcel, I am muself a big nightfighter buff (particulary NJG2 , NJG4 and NJG5).
    I 'd be happy to help if you need anything about NJG1 . I know a lot about Bomber Command crashes .
    You also want to meet Erich who is another NJG fan.
