Additionally, there were at least four additional Swedes in the Luftwaffe during the war. A few of them participated in training to become flying personal, but most ended up in different Luftwaffe ground divisions. One of them, Bengt Olof Harry Sterner, was KIA outside of Leningrad (if my memory serves me right).

Hello Hans! Thanks for your reply. I already found the post in the Skalman Forum - also interesting and of course i can read German!
I'm fine with you posting the photo also in other forums. Maybe it reveals more history!

Have a nice day and BR from Germany
Hans
