Ltn Josef Raesch Fokker DVIIF

Lieutenant Josef Raesch (born 4 June 1897, date of death unknown) flew with Jasta 43.

He was credited with seven aerial victories, two of which were over other aces, Guy Wareing and Ernest Charles Hoy.


On 26th July 1918, he was forced to abandon his burning DVII and parachuted to safety


2 months later, he was given a Pfaltz DXII but was unhappy with the new fighter..and he wrote: "I am very unhappy with the Pfaltz. It does not climb well, is clumsy in turns, and will not keep up with the formation"
