In looking through Luftwaffe in Norway Luftwaffe.no they have

Bv 138 3/406 Wk Nr 310066 Missing from Tromso 1701.42 Luftwaffe-zur-see has nothing on this plane?

Bv 138 3/406 Wk Nr 310044 has it crashed due to bad weather 21.02 42. luftwaffe-zur-see has it crashing on 21 feb 42 which is right?

RL 2-III/1179 - Bd. 8 - 3.Nov.41 - 2.Febr.42
RL 2-III/1180 - Bd. 9 - 3.Febr - 2.Mai.42

They cover the dates that you are interested in.

James
In my books, 21.02.42 and 21 feb 42 is exactly the same day/date....

FYI, Articles by Theodor Mohr also lists 1380310044 BD+EF 3./406 as lost on 21 Feb 1942 in a snowstorm
at Baltsfjord

Mohr also lists 138310066 DM+DF 3./406 as lost 17 Jan 1942 at Tromsö (unknown reasons)

Cheers
Stig

Re: Bv 138 losses

Hi James,

Actually, the entry for the loss of BV 138 W.Nr. 0044 can be found in two files of the Bundesarchiv:

RL 2-III/758 page 0021 and RL 2-III/1180 page 0396. In both cases there is a handwritten notation changing the date from 21.2 to 21.1 giving 4.3.42 as the date it was changed.
These changes can be found in RL 2-III/758 p. 0058 and RL 2-III/1180 p. 0352.

Curiously, while having to scroll down to page 0396, the photograph shows page 393.

best regards,

Jim

Also check out the Bundesarchiv.de, RM6/142 KTB Gen.d.Lw.B.Ob.d.M. for February 1942, page 6. Here the date is given as 21. February 1942.
