The II Gruppe of Jagdgeschwader 6 undertook two missions missions on the 17th and Uhlig was involved in second mission on the day. While the exact circumstances around his loss are unknown it is believed that 5th staffel was engaged by Allied fighters and in the ensuing combat 5. / JG 6 lost four aircraft., Oberleutnant Uhlig was one of the losses shot down over Kleve (Vermisst Raum Kleve-Nimwegen), near Köln, while flying an FW190 A-8 (WNr. 173826) weiss 1. Further research has showed that JG 6 aparently fought 19 Squadron of Royal Air
Force. The 8 Mustangs III claimed one Fw 190 destroyed and 4 damaged for the loss of one of them. As far as can be determined only Oblt. Uhlig was killed. If he was the only JG 6
loss that day he may have been shot down by F/L Eric Stanley Hughes, the Flight Leader of 19 Squadron. There was, however another RAF Mustang Squadron in
the area, 65 Squadron.
Werner Uhlig is buried in the Bonn north military cemetery (Federal Republic of Germany). Final grave location: Row 109 grave 929
