Bf109s in photos no 1 and 2 seem to be one and the same a/c from 2./JG1 (later to become 8./JG27). The emblem in photo no 1 is the short-lived Staffel badge of 2./JG1, which can be seen in a number of photos from late 1939. It is interesting to note that the numerals were moved from their usual position in front of the fuselage Balkenkreuz to the engine cowling between the dates given on the versos, i.e. between early November and early December 1939 - hence the caption on the December image, that "15" had changed its look.
