*Eugen Roos. I first met Eugen Roos in Hamburg in 1975, who lived in the Bundesstraße. He told me a few brief details of his war days. Served with Infanterie-Regiment Bremen, transferred to Flying Corps. In WW2 he was a major of the Luftwaffe, at the end of the war prisoner of the Americans. I did not know which decorations he had. This entry I found by coincidence.

*Eugen Roos, Major a.D.:  I first met Eugen Roos,  who lived in the Bundesstraße, Hamburg in 1974.  He told me a few brief details of his war days. Served with Infanterie-Regiment Bremen, transferred to Flying Corps. In WW2 he was a major of the Luftwaffe, at the end of the war prisoner of the Americans. I did not know which decorations he had. This entry I found by coincidence. Herr Roos made a very modest impression, and was very active as a pensioner, taking evening courses for various scientific themes and EDV-computer technology at the university, etc.

Feldflieger-Abteilung 9 war dem IV. Armee-Korps zugeteilt.
