1./ NJG 4 photo & document grouping to Fw. Ernst

Description

Grouping to observer Feldwebel Hans-Georg Ernst including his flight book with flights from 30.9.1942 until 5.5.1945 and many photos. His pilot Oberfeldwebel Gäblet served with 1./ NJG 4. It is likely that Ernst's unit was the same for a certain time. The grouping comes with a full photocopy of Unteroffizier Wöbler, who was the "Bordfunker" of his crew.

Roughly 285 photos in total including amazing pictures of aircrafts taken in the air and on the ground. Two portraits of Ernst wearing his medals.

Flight book cover has separated from the booklet. The booklet has all pages complete. Ernst's pilot was Oberfeldwebel Gäblet. They were on a Ju88. 268 flights listed including roughly 60 red marked enemy missions. There are many night flights listed as well as.

His crew shot down aircrafts such as a "Flying fortress" and a Sunderland. One destroyer ship and  Mosquito. There are "Reichsverteidigung" campaigns, missions over Darmstadt and Gießen as well as Heilbronn. A campaign against England was called "Giesela". Ernst had to bail out of his aircraft during this mission (3.3.1945).

Including a few postwar pictures (see one of the last pictures) and written memories which could be of the veteran.
