He-51 coded 23+U13

Dear All,

I have a photo of a Heinkel He-51 fighter coded 23+U13.

This I read as the third fighter Geschwader in Luftkreis 2, 1 Gruppe, 3rd Staffel, or JG 332.

Now there was JG 132 Richthofen, there was briefly JG 232 (I. Gruppe only) which was in March/April 1937 renamed I./JG 137, but I have never heard of JG 332.

Was this a spurious designation, or temporary designation for a unit equipped with fighter aircraft, soon to become a Schlacht unit (and equipped with say Hs 123 aircraft), or...

Any help in the matter will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Sinisa

Re: He-51 coded 23+U13

Thank you, but I do not see how that can be particularly helpful - I am pretty familiar with the pre-WW2 designations myself. It is just a generic stuff.

My question was rather specific, namely... which fighter Geschwader did the aircraft coded 23+U13 use to belong to?
