The LC had a Flak Abt. named F88. It was composed of :

1936: - Light 20mm AA battery

- Heavy 88mm AA battery ''Aldinger"

1938: - 3 Heavy 88mm batteries (1,2,3)

- 2 Light 20mm Batteries (4,5)

- 1 Heavy Battery formerly Searchlight (6)

- 1 Support Battery, Amunition column (7)

- 1 Heavy battery formerly the 1936 "Aldinger" (8)

- 1 Training Battery for spanish recruits (9)

The members of these batteries brought back plaques commemorating their LC unit. These plaques were locally made in thin sheet metal and often nailed on a wood plate.

Generally these plaques wore the unit number on the top.

The first one is almost special, because it is from the 4th Light battery, and the employed metal is very heavy.
