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.

Although not a pilot, his record is as noteworthy as that of Schnaufers crew, all bestowed with the Knights Cross. Originally in the 26th Infantry Regt., he transferred into the Luftwaffe in January, 1940. He graduated from Bombardier school and served with notable pilots such as Fw Becker over England, Uffz Hugo Greeven over England, Uffz Dries along the French Coast, Heinz Gericke (where Ludwig was designated as AC Commander, even tho he was not a pilot) over England, the French Coast and Russia, Lt Heinz Bussemer in Russia, Oblt Plümecke in Russia, and the most numerous (251) with Uffz Ludwig Denz in Russia. Altho nominated three times for the RK after his 400th mission, 4 October, 1943, his recommendations kept getting overlooked, even tho 400 was the acceptable number for bomber crews. 427 combat missions. In November, 1944, he was promoted to Oblt., and served in the 9th Paratrooper Regt, 15th Combat Engineer Company. A 4th RK recommendation was submitted by his Paratrooper Commander. Captured on 4 March, 1945, by American troops, he was released from captivity on 12 September, 1945.
