Errata on Bodenplatte

Within a couple of days I will post here an errata sheet for the Bodenplatte book. By no means this should be considered final, I am convinced there are more errors.....if you find any, let me know!

Regards,

John Manrho.

Thumbs up Re: Errata on Bodenplatte

Thanks John.

I really don´t know why most know publishes do not have an errata sector on their web pages. It looks a nice service for buyers, not? It´s interesting Luftfahrt Verlag downloaded French translations also.
I have suggested this to Adler Editora about our Fw58 book, udpates, corrections and translations.

Re: Errata on Bodenplatte

Hello Sergio,

thanks. I also think Errata sheets should be done more often. We also see Nick Beale doing it on his site. Indeed publishers most of the time have a website, but I think it is up to the authors!

cheers,

John.

Hello Christian, yes, this concerns pictures too. I believe you acquired picture of Maj. Vowinckel, correct? I have the logobooks and all the pics from Maj. Vowinckel. The originals come from the family. Cheers, John.

Re: Errata on Bodenplatte

John,

The Officer Commanding No.268 Squadron of No.35(Recce) Wing at Gilze-Rijen on 1 January 1945 was Squadron Leader A.S. Mann DFC, not Squadron Leader C.T.P. Stephenson DFC. S/L Stephenson DFC was slated to take command in late January 1945, but took over command early on 17 January 1945 when S/L Mann DFC was taken ill suddenly with appendicitis. The confusion about who was in command comes about most times because S/L Stephenson DFC signed off the Squadron's ORBs for the month as Officer Commanding - but the Squadron ORBs do record the change of command on the 17th. S/L Mann DFC has provided me his own eye witness account of the day's events which has been used in the Squadron History - ADJIDAUMO.

Regards,

No. 268 Sqn

Hello Col,

Thanks for the correction. Will be incorporated in issue 2. Can you also send me the eye witness account by Sqn Ldr Mann? I would be interested to read his story.

Regards,

John Manrho.

Hi John,
I wholeheartetly agree with you. If we all research until we are 100 % sure, we will never publish anything on a Luftwaffe subject. I "borrowed" Nick's idea on my WEB-site. And went one step further. I made parts of my incomplete database public. And I have had hundreds of responses, corrections and comments. In this way my research have progressed more in the last 2 years than it did over the last 20. And having an Errata page is in my opinion a fair service to my customers. But as you said it is an author and not a publisher issue.
