Uffz Herbert Frass
Wed Sep 2, 2015 14:18

Hello everyone I am looking for information on a couple of German pilots. My Grand Uncle F/Sgt Albert John Thomson was shot down in his 35 Sqn Mk 2 Halifax HR985 TL / A over Lisieux, Calvados in the Normandy Region of France in the early morning of the 12 November 1943. A friend in the RAF has suggested to me that it was Uffz Herbert Frass from 2/JG2 Nachtjagd Fighter Group. The pilot from the Halifax survived, and in his report he said that they had shot down one of the Night Fighters as he saw it crash into the ground just before the Halifax crashed. Does anyone have any information on this attack to confirm this ?
I would like to know who was the pilot that was shot down, and was the Halifax kill credited to Uffz Herbert Frass. Also does anyone have a picture of Uffz Herbert Frass or his plane ? Thank you and I would appreciate any help on this. Regards John.
