Hello to all :D; more follows.....................

Werner Mölders tells about his life.

The Condor Legion.

My comrades saw a parachute went out of the "Rata" which I had shot down, but I did not follow it since I should concentrate on the surrounding airspace; in the meanwhile others two squadrons of "Ratas" had joined the circus. But I did not engage in combat with them, because 10 minutes later with Rossival we were flying over enemy territory. Two "Ratas" flying apart had the misfortune to cross our path. I went to last of them and opened fire. After a short burst the bird caught fire and fell to the earth like a torch. It was a beautiful victory. Upon returning to the airfield commander Muñoz was there together with captains Murcia and Garcia, who wanted to return to train with the Bf 109, so did they and showed good flying conditions. Spanish ground staff should also come.

Hello to all :D; the end in Spain.....................

Werner Mölders tells about his life.

The Condor Legion.

December 1, 1938. Soon I must return to the homeland. My successor is already here, this is my good friend v. Bonin. He must take command of my squadron. With some comrades I enjoyed a short leave to visit Seville, Tetouan, Cordoba, Granada, Malaga, Gibraltar and Cadiz. Then my time came to an end and on December 6, 1938 I flew to Germany.
