    I heard that the day after Hanna was buried, someone showed up at her house and told her sister he waas supposed to pick up all of her decorations after her death. The man took them and they were never seen again.

    Hi Bob, what a sad story. I had not heard that before. There are some real crooks in this hobby. Her pilots badge was a one off I believe?

    Cheers, Ade.

    She got the Gemainsames Flugzeugführer- und Beobachterabzeichen 2. Modell mit Brillanten in besonderer Ausführung für Frauen. There were two of these medals awarded.
