MOST MEMORABLE DAY (Secondary Market Copy)
by Robert Taylor
Adolf Galland and his wingman Bruno Hegenauer break through the fighter escort of No. 303 Squadron’s Spitfires to attack Blenheim bombers of No. 21 Squadron over northern France, 21 June 1941. In two missions that day Galland claimed two Blenheims and one Spitfire, survived a forced crash-landing, and later a parachute escape from his blazing Me 109. That evening he learned he was to become the first recipient of the Knights Cross with oak leaves and swords – Germany’s highest award for heroism.
