Luftwaffe veterans in the Bundemarine
 
Gentlemen,

I take it that these Luftwaffe veterans who joined the the Bundesmarine were from the Luftwaffe anti-shipping force like RKT Werner Klumper. Also from those who flew seaplanes from Luftwaffe ASW or SAD (search and rescue). A few who flew Stukas and fighter planes is included of being in the Bundsmarine.
The list is long of the names of these Luftwaffe veterans who were in the Marineflieger after WWII. I know a few but I am giving you a chance to put down that you know of this topic. By the way Helmut Mahlke,Luftwaffe Stuka ace and Knight's Cross winner had became a Admiral in the Bundesmarine and a General in the Bundesluftwaffe after WWII. Let start!

I suddenly remember! Full admiral Gunther Luther of the Bundesmarine who flew Arado Ar-196 seaplanes of the Luftwaffe during World War II.

Berthold Jung who was a Luftwaffe fighter pilot during WWII. How many air to air victories that he got? He was a Konteradmiral in the Bundesmarine. Flew naval planes of the Marineflieger after WWII.

Rainer Brazel (born 1924) flew a lot of SAR (search and rescue) missions for the Luftwaffe during WWII. He became a politican after WWII. He was also a Oberleutnant of the Reserves in the Bundesmarine.

Anyone knows the names of the men in the Bundsmarine who were members of the Luftwaffe? The well known and the not well known?

I'm sure there were Luftwaffe veterans who flew the Do-24 three engined flying boats during WWII and went on flying the American Albatross twin engined flying boats of the Marineflieger after WWII in the 1950s and 1960s.
