The I./Jagdgeschwader 21.

Post by tigre » Fri Jun 22, 2018 3:51 pm

Hello to all :D; taking advantage of several articles that fell into my hands .......................

The Messerschmitt Bf-109 D.

The D-1 (code name 'Dora') was the first important production model of the fighter Messerschmitt Bf-109. Originally it was intended that the Bf-109 D be equipped with the Daimler-Benz DB 600 engine, a newer and more powerful engine than the Junkers Jumo 210 engines used in the first models, but the DB 600 was scarce, so the old motor continued to be used in D series.

The D-1 as eventually came to be produced was therefore very similar to the machines of the previous C series. The 109 D was armed with four MG-17 machine guns, two on the wings and two on the top of the engine cowling. The Bf-109D-1 had a short lifespan. Its production started in the spring of 1938. The production was fast: in August, it constituted almost half of the 643 first-line fighters of the Luftwaffe. At the end of October, almost 600 Bf-109 D-1 were in active service.

When the war broke out in September 1939, only 235 D-1 remained in the first line units. Two units were equipped with Messerschmitt Bf-109 D, the I./JG 21, commanded by Hptm. Martin Mettig, subordinate to the Luftgaukommando I (Ostpreußen) in the north, and the I./ZG 2 under Hptm. Johannes Gentzen, part of Fliegerführer z.b.V., in the south.

The Jagdgeschwader 21.

After a creation order issued on June 24, 1939, the Jagdgeschwader 21 was formed on July 15, 1939. This creation was linked to a reorganization of the I./JG 1 to which it was still subordinated at the beginning. This fighter group, the I./JG 21 (eventually there will only be one "Gruppe" throughout the existence of the Fighter Wing) was established for the first time in Jesau (province of Königsberg - East Prussia, today the Russian city of Juschny, near Kaliningrad), hence the "Jesau Cross" ("Jesau Kreuz") carried by the planes and which will be kept throughout the conflict even when the units were dissolved and incorporated into another Fighter Wing as the JG 54.

In anticipation of the impending conflict with Poland, the I./JG 21 moved on July 24, 1939 to an airfield in East Prussia further south, near the Polish border, located in Gutenfeld (today: Lugowoje, near Kaliningrad , Russia).

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

The I./Jagdgeschwader 21. At the edge of the war - August 1939.

On August 23, 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union surprised world public opinion by signing a non-aggression pact. From there, an offensive against Poland, trapped between its two powerful neighbors, was only a matter of time. After the increased tensions with Poland, the German forces had been assembling on the border with that country since mid-August, Around 18:30 hours on August 25, 1939, the key word for the start of operations against Poland was issued for all units from the Luftwaffe Command Staff at Wildpark-Werder: "Ostmarkflug 2 6. 8., 4:30 o'clock! "

However, on August 25, 1939, the Polish-British Common Defense Pact was signed. Faced with a completely different balance of power in Europe (or so it seemed at that moment), Hitler hesitated. He postponed the beginning of the war to give his diplomatic service more time to dissuade Britain and France from getting involved in the impending conflict with Poland. But it was too late for diplomacy.

On August 26, 1939, the Gruppe had at its disposal a force of 39 Bf-109 D-1, distributed among three Staffeln (squadrons); they were commanded by Oblt. Günther Scholz (1st), Oblt. Leo Eggers (2nd) and Oblt. Georg Schneider (3rd). According to the Group Commander: The celebrations for the anniversary of the Battle of Tannenberg were canceled due to growing international tension. On Monday, August 28 at 4:00 a state of war was declared and our planes were removed from the hangars, ready to take off to intercept possible Polish reconnaissance aircraft.

On August 31, 1939, Hitler issued Instruction No. 1 for the Conduction of the War ("Weisung Nr. 1 für die Kriegsführung") ordering to attack Poland in the early hours of September 1, 1939. In effect, the operations orders for the next day arrived at the base of the I./JG 21 in Gutenfeld at approximately 18:00 hours on August 31, 1939. The fighters had to take off at 04:30 and head to Warsaw to provide escort to some German bombers But the weather would not cooperate. Throughout the night, banks of thick fog veiled everything, leaving the Luftwaffe on land in the morning; the mission to Warsaw was duly dismissed.......

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

The I./Jagdgeschwader 21. War - September 1939.

It was not until 08:02 hours on September 1, 1939 that the Messerschmitts of the 1st Staffel were alerted and directed towards Insterburg, where the observation posts reported hearing the sounds of an unidentified aircraft engine. The German pilots were worried, but the Oblt. Günther Scholz, Kapitän of the 1st Staffel, tries to calm them down: those on the other side are as frightened as we are ............. However, no contact was made with the enemy, and after 20 minutes the German fighters returned to the base.

After lunch, the Gruppe moved from Gutenfeld to a small advanced airstrip in Arys-Rostken, about 130 kilometers south, near the Polish border, next to the Śniardwy lake, to cover the progression of the 3. Armee to the south. The Bf 109 D took off from Gutenfeld at 14:20 hours and landed half an hour later at its new base, followed by the mechanics and armorers, who arrived on a transport Ju-52 / 3m. Upon landing, the Gefr. Johannes Rauhut of the 1st Staffel experienced a failure in the landing gear and belly-in. The damage to his Bf-109 D-1 was estimated at 30%.

According to the Mettig story:

On August 31, I received the order (around 18:00 hours) to attack Warsaw the next day at 4:30 hours. But the weather was so bad that we could only fly in the afternoon. At 14:00 hours, the Gruppe had arrived at the Rostken airfield near the great Spirding Lake in the wooded area of ​​the Prussian Seenplatte. We were resupplied with improvised devices and, on September 1st, we participated in our first mission around 17:00 hours. The I./JG 21 was the only fighter unit based in Prussia and Silesia capable of flying over the Polish capital because, from its airfield, it could reach the target in one hour and forty-five minutes, which suited it to the autonomy of Bf-109 D.

According to Günther Scholz:

On September 1, 1939, the speaker reported: "Since 5:45, we have responded to the fire." It was the beginning of the war against Poland. With our planes, the personnel that follow us on Ju-52, we won Rostken, an airfield in the south of East Prussia. Our first mission took place in the afternoon; an escort of He-111 bombers to Warsaw.

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

The I./Jagdgeschwader 21. War - September 1939.

In fact, at 16:16 hours, twenty-two Dora of the I. Gruppe took off to escort 120 He-111 bombers from KG 27 and LG 1, as well as 30 Ju-87 B from I./StG. 1 flying towards the Polish capital. The escort also included sixty BF-110 heavy twin-engine fighters from I (Z). / LG 1 and I./ZG 1. Despite the haze, the pilots of the I./JG 21 managed to find the bombers, whose machine gunners are very nervous! ...........

The Leutnant Hans-Ekkehard Bob, pilot of the 3. Staffel under the command of Oblt. Georg Schneider, recalled:

"At the beginning of the afternoon, the three" Staffeln "our" "Gruppe" took off from Arys-Rostken and headed towards Warsaw. Our task was to provide coverage for the Heinkel He-111 of the KG of 27. When we arrived at the meeting point, their gunners opened an intense and chaotic fire on us. Our comrades took us for Poles! Apparently they did not know that our enemy did not have fighter groups of low-wing monoplane with retractable landing gear. Without radio contact with the bombers, our commander, Hauptmann Martin Mettig, resolved to launch a predetermined identification signal, a white rocket, which, when exploded, released three additional red stars. The signal gun was attached to the starboard side of the cabin wall, just below the canopy. The rocket had to go out through the perforated tube in the wall. Surely it was obstructed by something, because - as our commander told us later - when he pulled the trigger, the rocket exploded in the breech and returned to the cabin! The commander suffered severe burns on his right hand. The rocket sounded furiously inside the cabin, bouncing off the side walls and deck ... After a while, it seemed to have finished burning when it flared up again, which caused the explosion of the three red flares! The commander, suffocated by the smoke, expelled the dome to let out the red lights. With severe burns, he returned to the base with his wingman, Oblt. Schelcher and the other "Rotte" (pair of airplanes) of his "Stabsschwarm".

The remaining aircraft of our Group continued on their way to Warsaw, maintaining a healthy distance from our bombers, which still considered us hostile and stubbornly fired on us. On the outskirts of Warsaw we saw some Polish PZL 24 fighters approaching. They were ready to attack our bombers. There was a fierce dogfight, which quickly split into a series of individual duels. Our formation was scattered throughout the sky. We attacked the Polish fighters, giving the Heinkels a free passage to their target. However, the aerial battle took us through Warsaw, dangerously surpassing our reach. With no time to assemble, they all returned to Arys-Rostken on their own. Our young pilots, who were on their first combat mission, quickly became disoriented. As for me, after some circles I identified my location and went back home. I was the first pilot of the 3rd Staffel who appeared in Arys-Rostken, where I landed shortly before 18:00 hours. Our Staffelkapitän, Oblt. Schneider landed in another place to refuel and returned in the night.

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

The I./Jagdgeschwader 21. War - September 1939.

So of the eight fighters Bf-109 D-1 of the 3. Staffel only two returned to their base. Although no German aircraft was shot down, five pilots had to make emergency landings and were captured, while one (Gefr. Werner Ahrendt) landed in Lithuania and was interned (returning to his unit on October 6). However, five PZL P-11c (referred to as PZL P-24) were claimed as shot down, although only four were confirmed, the first of them on account of Lt. Fritz Gutezeit of the 3./JG 21.

The Gefr. Walter Nuhn of the 2. Staffel was also among the pilots who tested the combat in Warsaw on the afternoon of September 1, 1939:

"The Gruppe was formed in the following sequence: Stab, 1., 2. and 3. Staffel, Mi 2. Staffel took off with ten machines: two Schwärme (section of four aircraft) and one Rotte (two aircraft) extra, formed by Lt. Schön and I. The climatic conditions were decidedly unfavorable for the task in question, especially due to poor visibility. The flight to Warsaw was uneventful, until we encountered enemy fighters about 20 km north of the city. As soon as we saw them, the squadron (Staffel) rushed forward to attack, a wild dogfight developed, I did everything I could to stay with Lt. Schön, we marked two fighters and we faced them, both turned to meet us. Suddenly, one of them appeared big right in front of me.We opened fire at the same moment.When I broke the fight, I realized that we had strayed from Warsaw.I saw a single PZL 24 (PZL P-11c ) near and I flew towards it. It was in range only for a fraction of a second, and then it disappeared. By then I was more concerned about the anti-aircraft bombardment of the multiple weapons that surrounded the city. At first, you could see Flak bursts below, but then puffs of smoke began to appear around us, dangerously close. I could see our fighters, destroyers (Zerstörern) and bombers roaring over Warsaw. Here and there, enemy fighters engaged in combat individually with them. For the third time that day I could see a PZL fighter in my sights. I opened the fire and my adversary plunged into the clouds.

Then I found myself alone. Fortunately, I saw a formation of He-111 below and followed it. I accompanied them to a point about 10 km north of Warsaw, where they turned west, and I continued north. I did not see any of our fighters on my way back. I waited in vain until 17:25 hours over the confluence of the Narew and Bug rivers, and then I returned home. I flew down the Narew River to Ostrołęka. There, I changed course to 20 degrees and in Gnesen I crossed the border. From there I did not know where to go, so I dropped by to take a look at the nearest train station, but then I could not find it on my map. Following a narrow gauge railway, I arrived at Johannisburg and flew towards Arys. I did not find the airfield the first time, and I returned to Johannisburg. Finally, I saw the airfield, where I landed at 18:00 hours. The fuel warning lamp had been on for 28 minutes "...............

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

The I./Jagdgeschwader 21. War - September 1939.

During the skirmish over Warsaw the pilots of the I./JG 21 claimed to shoot down five Polish fighters PZL P.11c, of which four were confirmed later. The victories were credited to Lt. Fritz Gutezeit of 3./JG 21 (at 16:55 hours, in the Warsaw area); Lt. Gustav Rödel of the 2./JG 21 (at 17:08 hours, in the Warsaw area); Oblt. Georg Schneider of the 3./JG 21 (at 17:10 hours on Marki); and Uffz. Heinz Dettmer of the 3./JG 21 (at 17:19 hours, north of Warsaw). The claim presented by Oblt. Albrecht Dresz of 2./JG 21 was not confirmed and was dismissed (in fact he attacked Radomski's plane, who despite the damage received could return to his base with the injured pilot).

From the investigations carried out by Marius Emmerling it was concluded that Oblt. Georg Schneider of the 3./JG 21 had knocked down the PZL P.11c flown by the kapt. Gustaw Sidorowicz of the 113th Fighter Squadron (another source says he was shot down by Uffz, Dettmer, while Schneider knocked down ppor. Anatol Piotrowski)).

The losses of the German unit were devastating. Lt. Friedrich Behrens and Uffz. Otto Wolz of the 1./JG 21 belly landed due to the combat damage suffered in the fight with the Polish fighters over Warsaw and were captured. Lt. Behrens returned to Germany after the cessation of hostilities, on October 6, 1939. Uffz. Wolz, who had been wounded, left the hospital and returned to the service on November 12, 1939. Lt. Rudolf Heimann of the 2./JG 21 ran out of fuel and had to land on Polish territory. He was quickly taken prisoner, but was released from captivity after the end of the campaign, on October 6. The same destination was shared by two other pilots of the 3./JG 21. Lt. Fritz Gutezeit was forced to descend in the vicinity of Suwałki due to a shortage of fuel, like Uffz. Heinz Dettmer near Augustów. The two pilots were also returned to Germany on the same date (October 6). Gefr. Werner Ahrendt of the 3./JG 21 went to Lithuania, where he was interned until October 6. In general, five German pilots were forced to land behind the lines and were captured, while another was interned in Lithuania. Therefore, the losses of the Group were high, due to deficiencies in the navigational skills of its pilots as well as to an overly ambitious extension of the operating radius of the Bf-109 D-1.

In the case of Lt. Gutezeit he was hit by the fire of ppor. Tadeusz Sawicz and although his plane could continue flying the fuel tank was punctured with the consequences already indicated. The Bf-109 D-1 of the Uffz. Wolz was hit in the engine and cooler by ppulk Pamula; In turn Pamula was shot down shortly after by Lt. Rödel, who due to engine failure belly landed near Ostroleka and returned to his lines on foot. Lt. Behrens was shot down by the fire of por. Jan Borowski. For its part, Gefr. Herbert Rauhut suffered damage from the fire of the Polish pilots ppor. Wlodzimierz Miks and plut. Wladyslaw Kiedrzynski but was able to reach his base where he belly landed.

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

The I./Jagdgeschwader 21. War - September 1939.

In the following days, the aircraft of the I./JG 21 were assigned to ground support missions. However on September 6, 1939 Oblt. Leo Eggers, of the 2. / JG 21, reported having shot down a PZL P.11c at 14:40 hours, but in turn the Bf-109 D piloted by the Ogefr. Walter Nuhn had to make a forced landing in Sensberg due to a failure in the engine. On the morning of September 7, 1939 Do-17 Z aircraft belonging to III./KG 3 were bombarding their assigned targets in the Wloclawek area when they were attacked by three P.11c of the 132 EM. The Polish aircraft were intercepted by the Bf-109 of the 3. / JG 21 and Oblt. Georg Schneider achieved his second victory at the expense of the ppor. Jan Malinski who managed to save himself in parachute. Lt. Gustav Rödel of the 2./JG 21 was also shot down, although according to German sources for anti-aircraft fire while carrying out attack missions on ground targets.

On September 10 during a mission Oblt. Leo Eggers of the 2. / JG 21 suffered a failure in his engine and had to make a forced landing damaging his plane. On September 12, 1939, two more Bf-109 D of I. / JG 21 were again slightly damaged, when Lt. Heinz Lange and Uffz. Merker had to land in emergency. The truth is that from this date the Germans began to transfer part of their air forces to the west because they had already consolidated their air supremacy and from September 17, 1939, when the Soviet Army crossed the eastern Polish border, the Polish Air Force tried to save machines and men to continue the fight in the west.

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

The I./Jagdgeschwader 21. War - September 1939.

During the Polish campaign, several Bf-109 D were damaged by light anti-aircraft fire and portable weapons from the enemy when carrying out support missions on low-level flights. The only deaths suffered by the group were due to a collision in the air between two aircraft of the 3. Staffel aboveGehlenburg in East Prussia. Towards the end of September of 1939 the I. / JG 21 was withdrawn from his advanced aerodrome of Arys-Rostken and was ordered to move again to Jesau. With a total of 19 of its Bf-109 D-1 reported as damaged or totally destroyed, the Group had suffered the highest casualty rate among the nine Fighter Groups with Bf-109 that were engaged in Poland. The I. / JG 21 had contributed with around 30% of the 67 Bf-109 that were destroyed in the just ended air campaign. On October 9, 1939, the I. / JG 21 commanded by the now Maj. Mettig moved from East Prussia to the west to Plantlünne and twelve days later (October 21, 1939) to nearby Hopsten.

On September 17, 1939, several pilots of the I./JG 21 received the Iron Cross (second class) in Arys-Rostken. Hptm. Martin Mettig (Commander of the I./JG 21), Lt. Ekkehard Schelcher (1. Staffel), Lt. Hans-Ekkehard Bob (3. Staffel), Lt. Anton Schön (2. Staffel), Lt. Adolf von Boeselager ( 1. Staffel), Lt. Gustav Rödel (2. Staffel), Oblt. Leo Eggers (Commander 2. Staffel), Oblt. Georg Schneider (Commander 3. Staffel), Oblt. Günther Scholz (Commander 1. Staffel), Lt. Ernst Ewers (1. Staffel) and Lt. Heinz Lange (1. Staffel)
