Re: Ghostbombers updates

Hi Nick, thanks for the updates and your excellent site. I thought the requests from KG66 for black and blue paint for it's new Ju88's was very interesting. I'm afraid I took the liberty of putting a post about this on the LEMB as I was wondering whether anyone else found this fascinating message you had found during the course of your research as interesting as I do ?

Has anyone else got any thoughts on this ?

Regards, Sean.

Re: Ghostbombers updates

Hi Nick,
I always enjoy your up-dates and the valuable work you do on the less well covered facets and areas of operations of the Luftwaffe. I have a specific question to the Nachtjagdstaffel Norwegen article, do you have the German expression for this:
Kristiansand-South (also the location of a “fighter area battle HQ”) ?
kind regards
SES

I'm sorry but I don't. That is a problem with British intelligence material, you often have to try and guess what the original German words were.

Re: Ghostbombers updates

Hi Nick,
Understand what you mean. There is an excellent British post war intel report on the Luftwaffe Funkaufklärings Dienst. It took ages to read it, as I had to try and figure out what each operational, technical and unit term would be in German.
Well the background for my question was, that I am on the hunt for an Abschnitt Flugmelde Zentrale in the Kristiansand area, which had scramble authority and intercept control facilities, but even with tremendous help from Norwegian colleges it remains un-located.
For an in depth explanation please see:

Re: Ghostbombers updates

This probably goes all the way back to april 1940. In order not to mix up Kristiansund and Kristiansand, in Ultra, the first one was called -North and the other -South. So Kristiansand-south is just Kristiansand.
