Fighter Operational Clasp
Suffered serious wounds 26 June, 1942, on the ground, during a bombing attack on the Sidi Barrani airfield by British bombers. Died of those wounds 11 September, 1942. Beckman was uninjured in a crash on 10 September, 1941 at Ossijaki due to technical trouble (Prien). One known victory, perhaps his first, an unnamed Soviet AC on 8 September, 1941 on a Free Hunt with Jurgen Harder (Prien). A P-40 on 14 December, 1941. His 7th victory was a Spitfire over Malta on 30 April, 1942. His 8th victory, a Beaufighter 10 km north northeast of Ras-el-Tir N. Africa on 15 June, 1942. His last victory, he claimed a Spitfire, but was probably a Hurricane or P-40, over Mersa Matruh on 26 June, 1942, just before being wounded later that day.

Results 1201 to 1300 of 29515.
