ie. http://heritage.canadiana.ca/view/oocihm.lac_reel_t2410 etc etc etc

If any German speakers could investigate these, see whats hidden in there.

And a brief description of the content : Microfilm reels T-2405 to T-2468 include German documents from the U.S. German Military Documents series and from the Air Historical Branch 6, British Air Ministry; war diaries of British and US army units and formations, 1944-1945; notes on Canadian Naval Board procedures, 1942-1943; Military District file lists; Canadian Medical Procurement and Assignment Board minutes of meetings, 1942-1951; "Japanese Studies in World War II - Naval Operations in the Northern Area"; Japanese documents translated by the US Army Historical Section; and German documents collected by A.G.

Re: Luftwaffe files from Canadian Microfilm Archives online

Hello Dennis,

Thank you very much for sharing this interesting link. It enables to fill up several blanks in my piles of paper copies. Wherever possible, I will use these digital files instead of all those volumous paper mass.

Best regards, Marcel

Re: Luftwaffe files from Canadian Microfilm Archives online

The majority of this material, if not all, was once held by D-HH, and transferred to LAC recently.
