Hello Nick,

Interesting article about KGr.100 (though my main interest is I./NJG 1) and I was suprised to see the name of Dr. Kühnhold > it could be the same person who was involved with Jägerleitstellung Teerose near Arnhem in 1942/1943, I must check my archives to see where I have read about him.

Just a minor detail but an interesting one. All the best,

Marcel Hogenhuis

Hi Nick, a fantastic look and the complexities of how a Luftwaffe bomber group functions on a day to day basis. Excellent work so far, looking forward to further extracts.

Best regs,
Steve.

Hi Nick, will there be any further excerpts of Kampfgruppe 100's activities from the Ultra files to come?
I found the information in the first extract really interesting, and illustrates the daily life of an operational bomber unit.

Best regs,
Steve.

There probably will be more Steve (through to the Coventry Blitz?) but as I've indicated, KGr. 100's change of subordination seemed to cut off the supply of ops reports. From what I can see, the traffic about aircraft repair and replacement continues unabated though.

A lot of things have to happen before I do that: (a) get over bout of flu; (b) have holiday; (c) rotate and crop 2,000 images from last trip to Kew; and possibly (d) retire — a happy state I hope to achieve this summer.

That's not to mention a couple of other themes I think I can develop from the 1940 Ultras. Later this year I'd hope to photograph the 1940 files I haven't got yet — see (d) above!

Hi Nick, sorry to hear your feeling under the weather ( a), my sympathies to you, ive just got over the very same!
It would appear you have quite a lot on this year, i would be very interested to see more in the line of a/c repair and replacement stuff, also the information through to the Coventry Blitz period.

My very best wishes to you and please keep us posted!

Steve.

Re: Ghostbombers updates
 
I've just posted updates to Ghostbombers.com as follows:
  • Addition to the Kampfgruppe 100 article, about operations on the night of 20/21 August 1940.
  • A new article about NAG 6 and the Me 262.
  • Small corrections and additions to the 1./NAG 1 article.
  • New information about an NSG 9 veteran.
  • Minor corrections and layout changes throughout the site, as usual.

Nick,

Interesting article about NAG 6. I was hoping to find some information about Me 262 W.Nr. 111636.
See: http://www.ghostbombers.com/dd.16-8-2007
W.Nr.111636 reported serviceable at 08.00 hrs. on 22 February.
On 24 March, Adjutant reported that WNr. 111636 had been taken over by NAG 6 and took off that day.
The plane was found at Twente in April 1945.

Thanks, I should have mentioned that. That's the first correction to the article, then.

Hi Nick, forgive me if im wrong but have you added the additional article featuring Kampfgruppe 100 ops 20/21.8.40 ?
I dont see any article for this date.

It was only some additional detail that I added to the existing material, not a new article. I did it back in February (I was gradually accumulating things for this latest update), so I can't even remember what it was now but it wasn't enough to justify an update by itself.
