Unbekannter Jagdflieger der II./ JG 300
Hans Ulrich Greinke, 6./ JG300
Unteroffizier Greinke served with II./JG 300. The Soldbuch was issued to Greinke on 1 September 1939. From 15 March 1939 to 11 September 1941, he served as a member of the operations personnel at an air base. From 17 September 1941 to 3 October 1943, he had extensive pilot training at AB School 113 and C14. From 5 October 1943 – 20 October 1944 Greinke served with various units, perhaps as a liaison pilot. The final two entries on page 17 indicate assignment to the II. / JG 300 (Feldpost Number 53076) on 21 October 1944 and the 6th Staffel (6th Squadron) of the II./JG 300 (Feldpost Number 63763) on 6 March 1945. One entry on page 15 dated 30 April 1945 states that Greinke’s Wehrpass (pay book) was lost due to enemy action – this entry is signed by Hauptmann (Captain) Waldemar Radener, the Group Commander if II./ JG 300 and a Knight’s Cross winner. Below this entry is an intriguing notation by an American Officer 1st Lieutenant Jay D. Carpenter of the 3rd Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment (42nd “Rainbow” Division) who screened the book. An obscure notation on page 12 shows that Greinke was given a physical exam on 26 June of 1945 by a doctor at the Bas Eibling POW camp.
