Here another airman who was decorated with the Iron Cross, 2º Class in 1939. He was a bomber crew.........

Oberfeldwebel Henkel was a crew's bomber within the 1./K.G.2. On Sep 10 1939 at 15:00 (took off) the 1./K.G.2 attacks polish troops in the area south of Lomza with nine Do-17M airplanes. Shortly before the target area the plane of squadron-leader Hptm.Hevelke (U5+H) was hit by polish AA fire. The left engine catches fire and soon the entire plane is aflame. The crew (Hptm.Hevelke KIA, UO Scholz KIA, UO Heckner MIA, Ofw.Henkel) jumps out. After a few days Henkel can escape and reach german positions.
