KIA 18 March, 1943 over Helgoland; after downing a B-24 of 93BG thought to be "Eager Beaver", and while attacking a B-17, he was brought down by return fire. Prior to takeoff this date, he yelled to his wingman and closest friend, Heinz Knoke, "I want to bag the formation leader today". Gerhardt had bailed successfully and entered his dingy, but died of his mortal wounds, as reported by the ASR craft "Falke". His 1st victory, a Blenheim on 15 October, 1941, no location. A shared victory with Heinz Knoke, a PRU Spitfire AA810 piloted by F/Lt Alistair Gunn off Trondheim on 5 March, 1942. Gunn later became POW and was shot because of his involvement in the Great Escape. He was also credited with another PRU Spitfire piloted by P/O Ken Wright, near Bremen on 17 August, 1942. Another, his 3rd, a B-17 6 km north of Wilhelmshaven on 26 February, 1943. In late February 1943, he came up with the idea of dropping 100 lb. bombs onto the tightly formed American bombers. He and Knoke practiced the technique off Heligoland. His victories may only be 4. Buried Schiffweiler-Landweiler Reden. NOTE: See Gerhard, Dieter (duplication!)
