• Grouping to Unteroffizier Alfred Kreutzscher. After graduating from pilot school, Kreutzscher served with Aufklärungsstaffel 3 / (F) 22 from February 1941 to September 1943. This reconnaissance unit operated the Ju 88 on the Northern sector of the Eastern Front. After another round of pilot schools, this time leading to his Flugzeugführer-Abzeichen, he served with fighter pilot training units: the Jagdgeschwader 105, Jagdgeschwader 108, and from December 1944 the Zerstörergeschwader 101, a fighter-bomber unit located in southern Germany (Bad Aibling, Illesheim). 
  • While serving with the ZG101, Alfred Kreutzscher was killed in action on 18th of April 1945 in Nürnberg. Whether he died in air combat is unclear. He may have been sent on an enemy mission; this late in the war inexperienced pilots were often thrown into battle and taken out during one of their first front flights. He may also have been killed during ground combat against the Americans: around this date the battle for Nürnberg was raging. He is now buried on the city's Südfriedhof, Block 60, Reihe V, Grab 14.

    • Soldbuch, in good and complete condition, with portrait photo. Two awards entered: the Ostmedaille and the Flugzeugführer-Abzeichen.
