New book: Die Knullenkopfstaffel - 1.(F)/123

Hi,
I am the author of the book "Die Knullenkopfstaffel". And i am quite happy to get so much positive feedback for my publication - also in this forum.

Regarding to the post of ErwinR:
My book contains a number of excellent photos, several stories and interesting information of Lt. Hoefer. His crew was the first within 1.(F)/123 to get the EK1on May 29th 1940.

Feel free to contact me.

New Book: Die Knullenkopfstaffel - 1. FAG 123

Hi Erwin,
most of your photos are also included and well described in the book "Knullenkopfstaffel" 1.(F)/123 of Harald Rabeder.

I have already read most of the book in the meantime, and I am impressed about the high quality level of research and the excellent large scale photos published in this book.

In my opinion - the finest book about Luftwaffe long range reconnaissance.

I have attached some photos of the book "Knullenkopfstaffel" - and will post more. The paper quality of the original is very good.
The size of the jpgs had to be limited to < 200kb. Originals in book are of EXCELLENT Quality.

Regards
Seelöwe

Re: Die Knullenkopfstaffel - Fernaufklärung mit der 1. Staffel/Aufklärungsgruppe 123

Thank you very much. I have a question about the color of the emblem shown on the cover and the color of the emblem on the aircraft fuselage. Which one has the correct color? Was one a variant color?



Best,
Ed West

Re: Die Knullenkopfstaffel - Fernaufklärung mit der 1. Staffel/Aufklärungsgruppe 123

Hi Ed,
thanks for your interest.
I am the author of the book "Knullenkopfstaffel".

The Knullenkopf-emblem existed in several styles and color variants during the early years 1939 and 1940.
You will find some examples of different styles in my book. Concerning the color most of the Knullenkopfs were in blue (also different styles dark/light blue existed). In most cases the Knullenkopf was hand-painted. But as the emblem was also used on squadron cars, buildings and equipment, the soldiers also produced schablones for spraying.
The Knullenkopf I used on the cover is taken from a rare color photo I got from a observer of the squadron.

I hope this helps, if you have more questions, please let me know.
Harry

Hi Ed,
as far as I have seen in the book, there are photos of several variants of the squadron mascot. Different styles and probably varying colours.
The emblem on the fuselage is individual for each machine. In the book you will find a number of different interesting machine emblems too.

regards
Seelöwe

Hi Seelöwe,

Thank you for your reply. It seems new emblems keep turning up, and they always surprise me, especially their histories.
