From battle squadron 101 com mend, he was as a pilot in the 14./ Fighter squadron 40. He was from the 28. February 1943, in free hunting in the Atlantic. The first hit on an enemy plane, he was on 10. April - on 17. his first launch, after 12 attacks - a Whitley - recorded. For this he was awarded the EK2. Exactly one month later, another machine of the same model should be followed, which resulted in the award of the EK1. In addition to the familiarisation of search and rescue aircraft for the recovery of in-water crews about further attacks and takedowns - including DC-3, Halifax, Liberator and Sunderland, he was, after the shooting down of 9. Machine on 10. November 1943 with date of 14. the same month, the German cross in Gold awarded. The launch of the DC-3 on 1.
