Wartime copy of a studio photo of night fighter ace Hans-Joachim Jabs, with Knight's Cross, Iron Cross 1st and 2nd Class and Pilot Badge. Postcard format, very good condition with minor signs of age. On the back "Oberleutnant Jabs Ritterkreuz". Jabs went on to become a Lieutenant-Colonel (Oberstleutnant) in 1944 and received the Oakleaves of the Iron Cross on the 26 of March 1944. By the end of the war he had a total of 48 victories from which 22 against day fighters, all with a Messerschmitt Bf 110. He survived the war and died in 2003.

This photo is a original (period!!) copy of the portrait photo.
