There is a rogue group of copyright infringers who have stolen a much earlier version of my data - from at least 10 years ago - and have the affrontery to publish that, along with using my name, on their poorly researched website. They claim this is the 'original' Kracker Archive, a ridiculous claim since my Archive has been in a state of continuous development for over 30 years and nobody - NOBODY - has the original. They have no right to use my name or my data and readers who come across this nonsense should do nothing to encourage theft of this nature. I am outraged by this blatant theft and misrepresentation of my lifetime's work. The ONLY person I have ever authorized to publish my data and use my name is Kelvin Youngs, who earned my trust and respect many years ago and is authorized by me to publish my work on whichever website he organizes, currently this being its present home at the highly respected Aircrew Remembered.

2 Stärk,ObltAdj II/JG-1 (10/43)Fw 190A-4, 5 & 6Fighter Operational Clasp Gave the 8 October, 1943 order to ram the enemy when you ran out of ammunition; each pilot should account for for enemy AC this date. After the death of Harry Koch, he "ran things on the ground" which leads me to believe he was not a flying officer. Schuhmacher and Flecks seemed to run the air war until Kochs successor could be appointed.
