Looking for information on a member of Luftgaukommando VI - any thoughts?

Hey guys,

I recently found something with teh following inscription:


G. M.
Flieger H. Ing.
Luftwaffen B Kp.
412 VI 68
1941


From what I was told, this is someone from Luftflotte 2, Luftgaukommando VI.

Is there any way to find out more information?

TIA

Mike

Checking Wikipedia Luftgau Kommando VI was part of Luftflotte 2 from 1938 to the end of 1941. Now to try and decipher who the flyer H.Ing was.
Information usually found on an identification tag.

Hey Mike
I'm still looking, it's a neat learning process for me as well. Finding some info related to that subject - dog tags at other sites like http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com
But nothing definitive.
I'm sure something will come up....:-)

Just learned something new, it's not that it's the name of a flyer but actually a designation of a rank for example "Flieger-Hauptingenieur (Fl Hpt Ing)".
More to come as I learn.

Thanks for the update lilsis, good info to know. What would the "G.M." stand for?

Regards

Vince...

Ah!

The G.M. is the person's initials...

And he was an Engineer with Luftwaffen Bau Kompanie 412 VI 68

Hey Mike

I don't think so, from what I have read on other sites the Germans did not place personal information on identification tags, name blood type etc until later on in the war.
I think G.M. still leans towards a military / unit designation. IMHO
I'll see if I can dig up the reference to the personal information and pass it along as well as what G.M could have stood for.

Regards

Vince...
