On this same date, 24 March, 1945, he was shot down by a P-51 over the Brandenburg/Brest airfield. Wounded in the face and left hand by plexiglass fragments, he managed to bail safely from 6500 meters. He made a rough landing in a nearby forest, injuring his left knee, and unable to stand. The rescuing Germans thought he was a Negro (American) from the sight of all the dried blood on his face. When they opened his jacket they saw he was a German Lt., and was treated better! After the war, he was an architecht in Munich. Magnus. Letter on file.

Oberleutnant Richard Anders (January 3, 1915 - September 9, 1993) had participated in the invasion of Poland in 1939 with the Aufklärungsgruppe 21 when his reconnaissance plane was shot down by an enemy hunter plane which left him and Hauptmann wounded. Anders then changed units to Ergänzungs-Aufklärungsgruppe (6 August 1942) and Aufklärungsgruppe 12 (1 September 1942). He was awarded the Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes on 27 July 1944 as Oberleutnant and Flugzeugführer at 11. Staffel (H) / Nahaufklärungsgruppe 12 / Fliegerführer Kroatien / Luftwaffenkommando Südost after completing many reconnaissance missions and directing artillery fire. At the end of the war Anders joined Staff 8. Flak-Division. In total he has completed 370 feindflug (combat missions), most of which take place on the Eastern Front. Other medals and awards he received: Flugzeugführerabzeichen; Verwundetenabzeichen in Schwarz (November 26, 1939) and in Silber (January 21, 1944); Dienstauszeichnung der Wehrmacht IV. Klasse (1939); Eisernes Kreuz II. Class (December 13, 1939) and I. Classe (July 25, 1940); Frontflugspange für Auklärer in Bronze (21 April 1941), in Silber (22 February 1942), in Gold (30 November 1942) and mit Anhänger (19 July 1943); Luftwaffe Ehrenpokale für Besondere Leistungen im Luftkrieg (10 August 1942); Medaille Winterschlacht im Osten 1942/42 (December 31, 1942); and the Deutsches Kreuz in Gold (April 12, 1943). He also got one foreign medal namely the Ehrenzeichen der Slowakisches Schnellen Division XLII (Slovakien Honor award for service against the Soviet Union) which he got on 23 May 1942. What was unusual about Richard Anders's Oberleutnant photo was the absence of the Luftwaffe eagle logo on his hat! Post-war photos taken?
