I was wondering if anyone out there new specific details on either of these two units. I have not come across anything detailing what types of aircraft they flew or when and for how long they were operational or even who their commanding officers were. Michael Holme's wonderful site does not, unless I'm mistaken, mention either of these units. All I know is that KuFlGr Krim used the Verbandkennzeichen 6M while NARA holds several weeks of KTB entries for KuFlGr Stavanger (living in Australia, access to these files is nigh impossible).

Any further clues on these two mysterious units would be much appreciated

Hi Adam,

I can find nothing on "Krim/Stavanger"... However, from what I remember, these KuFlGr seaplane units flew either He 115's or Do 18's.

Not much help I'm afraid. I'll do a little more research and see what I can come up with.

Hi Simon,

Actually, I did mean KuFlGr Stavanger. I've not heard anything about the unit but apparently NARA holds a copy of the KTB for the unit. The only thing I can think of it being is a mix up with FlFu Stavanger and an extension of that somehow. I've never come across it as a unit before and was interested to know just what it was that the NARA files refered to.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
