Werner Mölders tells about his life.
The Condor Legion.
September 5, 1938. Again today has come back the "Feldwebel Lorenz", an infamous night bomber, who brings unease to everyone in a full moon nights. He has been given the comic name for some reason by the antiaircraft artillery. In order to try to catch him I moved to the airfield of Benicasim, as the Feldwebel Lorenz had been seen the night before about Castellón. Shortly before dark, Goy and I took off from Becasim. I made sure that the Spanish anti-aircraft artillery had clear there were two German fighter planes in flight. But we were not lucky and spent the night at Benicasim, suffering from the effective mosquito attacks.
The next day we brought a few mosquito's nets from La Cenia and after my management, Feldwebel Trenckle gave me 800 pesetas. The next evening I was visited by two Spanish commanders and talk about the night hunting.
It was a wonderful night of full moon. Patrolling at about 1000 meters north of Castellón, the time of flight passed without incident and was the same for Goy, the Feldwebel Lorenz had not taken off that night. At 02:00 hours and under a clear sky we flew along the coast to La Cenia where we landed without illumination.
