Re: Bf 110 Reconnaissance Unit - Which Staffel?

Almost clear.

WASt no longer exists as such. The functions of WASt were controlled by the Berlin authorities, hence their very literal interpretation of the Datenschutz provisions. Approximately a year or so ago, control of WASt was passed to the Bundesarchiv and it is now known as the Bundesarchiv-PA (Personenbezogene Auskünfte). Ideally over time, a slightly more open and helpful approach for researchers will be taken to matters of data protection.

Having first written to WASt in 1977, they will always be WASt to me! Was always exciting when after 3-4 months a letter/package came from them. Sad that due to DP and GDPR, those days are long gone

I totally understand. Likewise, Kew will always be the PRO to me rather than TNA.

There was a lot to be said for the thud of an envelope from Germany in the hallway in pre-internet times. Thankfully, I was just about able to get the small number of NVMs I wanted before the shutters came down in the early 1990s.

There are hopeful indications of improved access.
