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.

One known victory, a Spitfire on 29 May, 1940, no location. A 2nd, a Spitfire on 13 August, 1940, no location. The name "Erhard" appears in the OKL Claims List. In 2014, the following was reported by Bjorn Rose & Peter Cornwell: A Bf 110C-4 of 5/ZG-76, piloted by an Oblt Gerhard Bremer, crashed and exploded on 15 August, 1940 alongside the Farley Rd. at Slackstead. Both the pilot and Radio Operator, Uffz Leo Pauli believed perished in the crash, and were buried initialy in the Hursley Churchyard on 20 August as "Unknown German Airman", and later interned together at Cannock Chase, Block 9, Row 4, Grave 19. Positive identity of the crew was not possible due to the severity of the crash. They may have been shot down by F/L R.A.Barton & P/O J.R.B.Meaker of No 249 Sq, and also claimed by F/L J.H.G. McArthur of No 609 Sq.. I suggest the reader use caution, but I do believe that this Gerhard is Erhard.
