    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Maybe there is a whole aircraft down there? In France they found a spitfire 7 meters down, he had hit the ground with 700 kmp

    Okay mate it could still be from JG 3 as they were only actually based at Pitomnik prior to late Dec 1942 but flew over the Stalingrad area from August . I am particulary looking for the crash site of Ritterkreuztrager Georg Schentke who was shot down on 25/12/42 over the Northern part of the Kessel.

    Many RKT were KIA / MIA at Stalingrad , i am also searching for Willi Henz MIA since January 1943 in the area of Marinovka !!

    I think it would still be possible to find a RK at Stalingrad !!
