From the 1944 Lucky Bag:


Hans was lost when the FG-1A Corsair he was piloting crashed near St. Augustine, Florida, on November 16, 1945.

He is buried in Connecticut.


He was a member of — or flying an airplane belonging to — "MF OTU." Unsure exactly what it stands for; suspect it is "Marine Fighter Operational Test Unit" or "Operational Tactics Unit."
