LG 1 Aircraft (Ju-88) Photos Request
 
Hello all,
I plan on writing up a wehrpass in my collection to RKT Gerhard Richter and was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a few specific Lehrgeschwader 1 Ju-88 aircraft photos.
I am after photos (or colour profiles) of aircraft that carried the following codes between Sept 1939 - November 1940:

L1+DS
L1+KS
L1+HT
L1+DR
L1+GR
L1+RT
L1+KR
L1+OR
L1+AR
L1+ST
L1+CT
L1+KT
L1+ES
L1+MT

If anyone has any other details of the aircraft flown by Major Richter between November 1940 to the end of the war any & all information would be much appreciated. He served on the Mediterranean/North African Front and never served in Russia (as far as I am aware). At the tail end of the war (Oct '44 to Apr '45) he served with IV/NJG 2.

And secondly, can anyone shed light on these Legion Condor entries for me, i.e. what aircraft would he have flown and what does the Fiendfl.b.L.C mean? (I am assuming the L.C means Legion Condor)?
Thank you in advance.

Best wishes

Looks like a great Wehrpas I would love to see additional images if you have the time to scan some.

btw If you don't already have the volumes by Peter Taghons "Die Geschichte Des Lehrgeschwader 1", Band I and II, they may shed light on Richters service and include photos of the aircraft designations you listed.

Also "Die Ritterskreuztrager Des LG1 - 1939-1945", by Ralf Schumann has a few nice photos of Richter.

Regards

Jeremy

Thanks for the pointers, I will have to track them down.
When I have completed the write up of the Wehrpass I will post it here with images so members can see it but I will attach one of his award pages here & one of the telegrams. What I particularly like about it is that Richter carried on filling in his postings after he joined the post war Luftwaffe so it shows a total listing of his service from 1936 to 1970.
