Hauptmann Kurt Capesius was an Austrian who joined the Luftwaffe in May 1938. He underwent initial training at the Luftwaffe academy at Berlin-Gatow, followed by spells at a training school at Celle and an instrument school at Wien. Initially, he flew as a fighter pilot with I./JG 134 and then II./JG 54, also based at Wien, but in April 1940 he transferred to 9./KG 51. Capesius took part in missions flying the Jun88 over the British Isles, the Balkans and the Soviet Union. Shortly after the invasion of the USSR, however, he was appointed Staffelkapitän of 10./KG 51, where he was responsible for training replacement crews. Capesius later returned to 9. Staffel and flew many sorties over the Black Sea and Stalingrad. He was awarded the Knight’s Cross on 30 November 1944

668 Csukas, KalmanLtColHungaryKdr 2nd Air Brigade (1/43 Ilovskoye S.U.)Re 2000, Bf 109FFighter Operational ClaspKalman came from an old noble family, whose ancestors gained nobility in 1499 in the heroic struggle with Turks for their outstanding courage. His father was a Reformed pastor, a member of the National Assembly. Kálmán Csukás, after completing the four secondary school classes, went to a military education facility, completing the military masterpiece in Budapest-Hűvösvölgy in 1920. He then attended the Ludovika Academy where he received artillery training and was ordained as a lieutenant on August 20, 1924. He did not stay long with his original weaponry - the flight attracted him. It has achieved excellent results as a sportsman. In 1926 he was a trained fighter pilot. Between 1929 and 1932, he was a military school, he became a captain and was transferred to the General Staff. As Major General Staff, he was the immediate supreme leader of the Soviet front, to the deputy governor, István Horthy. On October 29, 1942, on the 2nd of October, beside the Iron Cross of the Hungarian Order of Merit, it was adorned with swords decorated by warlords, and from November 1, Lieutenant Colonel. On January 19, 1943, he was sent back as commander of the airport of Ilovskopee, working airplanes and airplanes, and remained in the area around the Russians. With all his contacts with the General Staff, his brigade showed an example of his 400 volunteer soldiers trying to break out of the Soviet ring. In an armored vehicle's command he was killed, a grenade slamming his neck, the machine gun closing fire on his chest. Of the four hundred heroes, only a few returned to the brigade. The next day, the brigade had attempted to complete the outbreak, which was successful. His pilots in the mainland knew nothing about it, and the War broke out. The Pesti Hírlap announces the death of his death only on February 9. His final resting place is in an unmarked grave on Russian soil. After his death, he declared Horthy a governor, and he was appointed Colonel, and he was represented by the Knights of the Order of Merit of the Hungarian Order of Merit and the Sword of the Sword
