Stuka pilot Heinz Migeod (SEE LATEST NEWS HERE)
Hi and welcome to this site;
I met Dr. Migeod at a South African Military History Society (SAMHS) meeting in Cape Town during May 2010 where he made a small presentation of his involvement as a Luftwaffe pilot during the French campaign of 1940. I was amazed with Heinz's clear account of the happenings of 70 years ago and asked him if I could interview him on camera at his house to record these very interesting and historically important stories.
The purpose of this web site is to present the interviews with Heinz and other related information. Heinz has a fine collection of photographs from his pre- and war years and this together with some of his past military documentation are also presented here.
This is a non-political web site and is done for historical purposes and not to glorify or promote any past political group.
Special thanks to Bruce (Wiley) Wallace for his research and assistance with the construction of this site.
This is a living web site. Any input will be much appreciated regarding additional information, correctness, information from relatives of members who served with Heinz in his staffel/gruppe, photographs, stories etc. Please e-mail me or leave a message in the comment box.
