Re: Question on He 115s with 1./106 in 1939

Unfortunately, so much incorrect information on Luftwaffe seaplanes over the past 50 years has been published by people not having time to bother about checking the original contemporary documentation available. This is in particular related to the He 115.
Sorry, my error. The date for the B-1 starting production in my post above should have been November 1939 and not 1940. So what is the best guess for the model of He 115 M2+FH on 5th September 1939?

Thanks for the help.
Best wishes
Tim O.

Looking for any information or documents relating to:
Alfred Schmittka 5./KG 54; Josef Harmeling 4.(Schlacht)/LG 2; Wilhelm Gaul 1./106, 2./906 & III./KG 40; Karl Müller I./KG 2; Werner Breese 5.(F)/122
