The Ultimate Luftwaffe Organizational Online Interative Reference

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am working on creating the ultimate online Luftwaffe reference. My goal is to eventually cover every aspect of the Luftwaffe branches and organizations, ranging from the well known Flieger to the obscure Nautiker Korps.

Basically the way this works is that I lay the ground work and you add the rest.

Additions are whole heartedly welcomed and encouraged within each thread. I am looking for any data or militaria related to the topic of the thread. This could include: period photos, insignia, uniforms, documents, and even first hand accounts from men in these branches.

Basically, anything pertinent to the topic!

I hope that you enjoy what you see. As you can see, I have a very long way to go. There many pending items that I am working on, daily. There are also many items I do not even have listed... yet.

Hi Paul,

Here are two rare photos which don't come under any of your LW chapters,

Both I would say belong in the "Auxiliary Formations of the Luftwaffe" chapter.

Pic one: Luftwaffe Technische Nothilfe (TeNo).

Pic two: Insignia is the wing for Fliegerisch Tatigen Angestellen der Luftwaffe.

Most often they were civilian pilots and wireless operators who specialised in training and instruction.

Functions were: Flugbetriebsleiter and Flugzeugfuhrer.

They were active in the Luftdienstverband, a LW unit which was in charge of docking large flying boats.

They cooperated closely with personnel of the Flugsicherungsschiffe. Personnel often came from commercial airlines

such as Lufthansa.

Cheers,

Larry
