WWII Luftwaffe: Oberstleutnant Hans Phillip
Luftwaffe ace and Knights Cross recipient with over 200 victories mainly on the Eastern Front. Phillip’s plane was hit by a B17 gunner in October 1943, there is also speculation he was hit by a P47 Thunderbolt flown by Robert Johnson. As Phillip tried to nurse his plane back to his airfield he was forced to bail out at 50 metres where his parachute failed to open. He was buried with full military honours on 14th October 1943. This figure depicts Phillip with one of his units mascots, a tame fox.
