Footnote:Eduard Lindinger was born on January 17, 1915 in Sattlern (today a part of Arnstorf, southeast Bavaria). Little is known about his life and career in the Luftwaffe apart from the information the document collection provides. Lindinger received his Pilot’s Badge on February 15, 1940 in the rank of Lance Corporal. At some point in 1940 or early 1941 he was placed in the 7th Squadron of Fighter Wing 1, a medium bomber wing. It can be assumed that he flew missions during the Battle of Britain, and presumably for this he was awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class on May 26, 1941. In June the Wing was redeployed to the Eastern Front. The new area of operation was the Baltics and later the vicinity of Leningrad. Here Lindinger received the Iron Cross 1st Class, the Front Flying Clasp in Bronze, Silver, and Gold, his promotion to Sergeant, all between July and December 1941, and the Honour Goblet on February 13, 1942. In 1942 the Wing’s area of operation was shifted further to the south, at the Volkhov front and over the Demyansk pocket. On May 18 Lindinger received the German Cross in Gold. In early July his Third Group flew missions against ships in the Gulf of Finland for a short time before being redeployed to Bryansk to repel Russian tanks that had broken through the German line of defence. Lindinger was wounded on August 3, 1942, the circumstances are unknown. In October the Wing was redeployed to the southern part of the Eastern Front to fly missions over Stalingrad. Around this time, on October 13, Lindinger was awarded the Front Flying Clasp in Gold with Pendant. On December 9 he received the Knight’s Cross. At some time between late 1942 and August 1943 Lindinger, after flying 300+ sorties in Fighter Wing 1, was placed in the Student’s Company at Pilot’s School A/B 115, presumably to train new pilots. Here he was promoted to Master Sergeant on September 1, 1943. At an unknown point in time after this Lindinger served in the 3rd Group of Nachtjagdgeschwader (Night Fighter Wing) 5. However, he was not particularly successful as a night fighter, not being able to claim a single night victory. After the Second War Lindinger eventually joined the Bundeswehr and served for another 9 years between 1956 and 1965. The highest rank he reached was that of Hauptfeldwebel (Staff Sergeant). He died on September 1, 2004 near his birthplace, in Arnstorf.
